GENERAL ORDERS 



UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, 

RALEIGH 

RULES, REGULATIONS AND ORDERS CONTINUED IN EFFECT 
Order No. U-l 
In conformity with Chapter 134, Public Laws of 1933, and with the power 
vested in me by said act, it is hereby 

Ordered, That all rules, regulations and orders of the late Corporation Com- 
mission in effect on December 31, 1933, are hereby continued in full force and 
effect until further order. 

Issued this the 2nd day of January, 1934. 

Stanley Winborne, 
R. 0. Self, Utilities Commissioner. 

Chief Clerk. 
Docket No. 1. 

RESTRICTION IN THE PAYMENT OF DIVIDENDS 
Order No. U-2 

The action of the North Carolina General Assembly in enacting Chapter 307, 
Public Laws of 1933, was tantamount to a mandate to this Commission for a 
more thorough regulation of utilities under its jurisdiction. 

This law vests this Commission with full power to protect the financial 
integrity of the utilities and the public interest. Section 17 of this act 
specifically prohibits the stockholders, directors or agents of any utility, in 
any manner, to deplete, reduce, conceal, abstract or dissipate the earnings or 
assets, decrease or increase its liabilities or assets without first making appli- 
cation to this Commission and by order obtain its permission to do so. 

A study of the reports of the utilities on file in this office and a study of the 
financial methods employed by them disclose a policy which, in some instances, 
is not in accord with the views of this Commission. 

Heavy interest charges and amortization debt expense, and special charges 
to controlling campanies have proved and are still proving a heavy drain on 
income which, of necessity, have had and still have a material effect on rate 
structures. Surplus has been used in the payment of dividends on common 
stock, and surplus and retirement reserves, which, in some cases appear ab- 
normal, have been appropriated by the utilities in building up new properties 
at the expense of the patrons of the utilities in question. It appears that 
unnecessary burdens have been imposed on the consuming public. The pay- 
ment of dividends, in excessive amount, is tantamount to depleting, reducing 
and dissipating the assets of the utility and tends to bring about a condition 
necessitating the incurring of further indebtedness which the intent of Section 
17 is designed to prohibit. 

It is the opinion of this Commission that, under existing conditions which 
prevail generally throughout the country, no utility which has an indebted- 
ness in addition to that for current expenses should be permitted to declare 
or pay any dividend on common stock in excess of 6% per annum; and that 



6 ]ST. C. Corpoeation Commission 

no utility which has no indebtedness but for current expenses should be 
permitted to declare or pay any dividends on its common stock in excess of 7% 
per annum. It is the further opinion of the Commission that no utility, 
under existing conditions, should be permitted to use any part of its surplus 
in the payment of dividends on common stock. It is therefore 

Ordered: 1. That no utility under the jurisdiction of this Commission, 
shall use any part of its surplus in the payment of dividends on its common 
stock except upon the proper showing of the necessity therefor and upon the 
authority of this Commission. 

2. That no utility with indebtedness, in addition to that for current 
expenses, shall declare or pay to its holders of common stock dividends in any 
amount in excess of the net income of the utility, after depreciation, and in no 
case shall the dividends declared or paid exceed 6% per annum, except after 
application, hearing and authority so to do. 

3. That where any utility without indebtedness, except for current expenses, 
pays any dividend in excess of 7% per annum upon its common stock such 
payment shall be deemed prima facie evidence that the rates of such utility 
are unreasonably high and the utility so doing shall be subject to an order to 
show cause why its rates should not be immediately reduced. 

4. That no utility shall increase its capital stock issue, in any manner, for 
any consideration except after application to and specific authority from 
this Commission to do so. 

5. That for the purpose of complying with this order, without special appli- 
cation and hearing and a specific percentage rate prescribed by this Commission, 
the rates for depreciation shall not be more than the following: Telephone 
utilities, 4%; electric utilities, 3%, artificial gas utilities, 2%; nor shall these 
percentages be unreasonably decreased for the specific purpose of increasing 
the net revenue and justifying the payment of a dividend which would not 
be otherwise permissible under Section 2 and 3 hereof. 

Note. Where the accounts of two or more of the above classes of property 
are combined and the investment in each class has not been separated, it will 
be necessary to make an arbitrary allocation to which to apply the above 
percentages of depreciation. 

6. This order is hereby made effective from and after January 1, 1934. 
Issued this the 2nd day of January, 1934.

R. O. Self, Utilities Commissioner. 

Chief Clerk. 
Docket No. 1. 

SEGREGATION OF MERCHANDISE ACCOUNTS 
Order No. U-3 
At present the blanks of this Commission for the use of utilities in making 
their annual reports provide that the net revenue derived from the sale of 
merchandise (appliances, etc.) be shown in connection with the revenue 
derived from the sale of electric energy or gas, according to the class of 
merchandise — electric or gas appliances. 



General Orders 7 

In the opinion of the Commissioner this consolidation of accounts should he 
divorced and the merchandise account reported separately and in full as to 
revenue and expenses. It is, therefore 

Ordered, That each utility, under the jurisdiction of this Commission, in 
making its annual report for 1933, and in future reports, shall report to this 
Commission its merchandise revenue and expenses independently of electric 
and gas operations on a supplemental blank provided by this Commission for 
this purpose, which supplemental blank shall be designated as Section M to 
Report Form A. 

It is further ordered that the revenue and expenses of the merchandise 
account shall be shown independently on income statement in the same manner 
as other departments are shown. 

This the 5th day of January, 1934. Stanley Winboene, 

Utilities Commissioner. 

R. 0. Self, 
Chief Clerk. 

Docket No. 1. 

REQUIRING INVENTORIES TO BE FILED 
Order No. U-4 

The Utilities Commissioner, who is charged with the duty of seeing that 
equitable rates are established, which are just and fair, both to the consuming 
public and to the various utilities in the State, is without inventories or ap- 
praisals of the properties of the utilities which the Commissioner must have 
to properly and accurately determine the rate base. 

The only information available in this office purporting to give the value 
of the properties of the utilities is that of Fixed Capital accounts shown in the 
annual reports of these utilities filed with the former Commission. As to how 
nearly the figures in these reports approximate the real value of the properties 
is largely conjectural or speculative. Under the circumstances, it would 
be expecting too much of the Commissioner to accept the figures shown in 
these reports at their face value without supporting data. It is therefore 
very apparent that the Commissioner, or the Commission, is handicapped in the 
full performance of his or their duties and will so remain until the Commission- 
er is supplied with adequate inventories, properly appraised values, and 
proper adjustments made under the Commissioner's direction. 

In view of this situation, it is therefore obvious that one of the first things 
of paramount importance facing the Commissioner is to secure from each 
utility operating in this State an inventory of its physical properties and other 
items that form the basis for determining what rate of return each utility 
should be allowed to receive. These inventories are also needed by the Com- 
missioner or the Commission to provide proper rate structures and to determine 
the amount which should be allowed for depreciation. 

These inventories should show a segregation of the various units of property, 
properly located, age of property, expected longevity of property, original cost, 
reproduction cost, new, and reproduction cost, new, less depreciation. As 
these inventories will be of mutual advantage to both the utilities and the 
Commission, the Commissioner will expect the hearty and complete coopera- 
tion and a prompt response by each utility. Whatever expense is occasioned 



8 N. C. Corporation Commission 

by the work of preparing these inventories, in the opinion of the Commissioner, 
will be fully justified by removing from the public mind the element of doubt 
as to sound value. 

Much complaint, from many sources, has come to the Commission with 
reference to this subject. I have been advised that only a few utilities had 
such inventories and appraisals immediately available which could be supplied 
with little or no additional cost. This office cannot conceive of a well reg- 
ulated, well managed corporation not keeping its inventories, as well as prop- 
erty costs, up to date and intelligently separated as to its classes. It is 
mandatory by order of this Commission that all utilities keep their accounts 
in accordance with the "Uniform Classification of Accounts." It is, therefore 

Ordered, That each and every electric, artificial gas, street railway, water 
and telephone utility, operating under the jurisdiction of this Commission, is 
hereby directed to file with this Commission, in a manner hereinafter pre- 
scribed, a complete inventory of its physical property in actual use and such 
other items which are deemed by it to be factors in determining the rate 
base of the utility. In addition, there shall be filed an inventory showing 
properties temporarily not in use, at date of inventory, by the utility, but 
which still form a part of the fixed capital account. The period for which 
each item of property has been idle shall be shown and explanation made as 
to why same is not in use. In the case of utilities operating electric properties 
exclusively, utilities operating electric, gas and other properties jointly, 
street railway, water and telephone utilities, inventories shall be filed as 
of December 31, 1933, on or before April 1, 1934; in the case of utilities operat* 
ing gas properties exclusively, inventories shall be filed as of October 1, 1933, 
on or before February 1, 1934, and in addition, these gas utilities shall file 
statements on or before April 1, 1934, showing additions and withdrawals of 
properties from October 1 to December 31, 1933, inclusive. 

Note. The difference appearing in the effective inventory dates in gas 
and other utilities is due to the fact that utilities operating gas properties 
exclusively are already at work in the preparation of their inventories, having 
consented, (at the request of the Commission, during the month of November, 
last) to furnish them. 

It is further ordered, That the property shown in inventories shall be 
segregated as follows:

this Commission at the time of filing the inventory. 

It is further ordered, That where the properties of a utility are located 
not only in North Carolina but in some other State or States, then in "such 
case, separate and distinct inventory must be filed for the properties in North 
Carolina, and a statement filed showing the amount of fixed capital located 
outside of the State. 

It is further ordered, That with the annual reports of all utilities for the 
year 1934, and each year thereafter, there shall be filed a statement in con- 
nection with Fixed Capital Account showing all property added to fixed capital 
during the year of said report, and a statement showing all property withdrawn 
from fixed capital during the year, in both cases statements shall be itemized 
in the same manner as the inventory called for by this order. 

Issued this the 15th day of January, 1934.

Docket No. 1. 



INFORMATION IN STUDY OF DEPRECIATION CHARGES FOR TELE- 
PHONE UTILITIES 

Order U-5 

The amount of depreciation a telephone utility should be permitted to 
charge to operating expenses depends upon the character of the property it 
owns or operates. This is due to the fact that there is a wide difference in the 
estimated service life of the various units of property, and only a study of 
actual records of the various companies in this respect will reveal the 
longevity of such property, thus giving percentages which may be used in 
arriving at a composite rate. 

The Interstate Commerce Commission, which has given exhaustive study 
to the question has prescribed a classification of depreciable properties upon 
which uniform percentages may be applied and has called upon Class A and 
Class B companies to furnish the percentages with supporting data gathered 
from actual records. 

In this task the Interstate Commerce Commission has asked for the co- 
operation of the various State Commissions, and other regulatory bodies, and 
has furnished forms for this purpose. This Commission believes that the 



General Orders 15 

National body has opened the way to solving this vexing problem which 
has given grave concern to all interested parties and will, therefore, give 
its whole-hearted cooperation. Therefore, it is 

Ordered, That for the purpose of cooperating with the I. C. C. under Sec. 8, 
of the Order of July 28, 1931, in Docket No. 14700, said Order of July 28, 
1931, and amendment thereto, are hereby made a part of this order in so far 
as it affects the compilation of the information desired. 

It is further ordered, That for the assistance of the Commission in pre- 
scribing the composite annual percentage rates to be effective beginning January 
1, 1934, each operating Class A and Class B telephone company, in the juris- 
diction of this Commission, shall not later than July 1, 1934, file with this 
Commissision estimates of said percentage rates applicable to ledger values 
of the respective primary accounts covering the classes of property shown 
in attached forms owned and/or used by such company; that such composite 
percentage rates shall be based upon estimated service values and service 
lives developed by a study of the company's history and experience and such 
engineering and other information as may be available with respect to future 
prospects, and shall produce a charge to operating expenses for the primary 
account, where more than one class of property is covered by the account, equal 
to the sum of the amounts that would otherwise be chargeable for each of 
the various classes; and that such estimates shall be accompanied by a sworn 
statement showing the bases therefor and the methods employed in their 
computation. 

It is further ordered, That each company shall furnish the information 
as far as practicable, called for by each of the attached forms, in duplicate, 
and which are hereby made a part of this order.

Docket No. 1. 

ANNUAL REPORTS 

In the interest of efficient administration of the duties of this Commission 
full information about the year's operations of the utilities under the juris- 
diction of this Commission should be available to the Commission and the 
public at the earliest practical moment after the close of the year's business 
on December 31. 

Under the present ruling of the Commission the utilities are given until 
April 1, to file their annual reports. This delay, in the opinion of the Com- 
mission, is entirely too great and detrimental to the proper conduct of the 
work of this office. 

Under modern methods of accounting which are in force by the utilities 
it is the opinion of the Commission that thirty days is ample time for the 
utilities to complete and file their annual reports. It is, therefore, 

Orderd, That the former order of this Commission, issued November 1, 1931, 
is hereby amended by striking out April 1, and inserting in lieu thereof 
February 1. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self,

PROCEDURE IN CASE OF DELINQUENCY IN FILING ANNUAL REPORTS 

Order U-8 

The laws of this State require that every public utility, railway, franchise 
motor vehicle carrier, and other public service agency, shall file an Annual 
Report with this Commission (Chapter 307, Public Laws of North Carolina, 
1933). 

An order of this Commission, issued November 1, 1931, and amended Oc- 
tober 4, 1933, requires that every utility under its jurisdiction shall file an 
Annual Report with this Commission on or before February 1st of each 
year for the previous year's business. 

For the violation of any order of this Commission, the Law provides for 
the imposition of a penalty not to exceed $1,000.00 (Chapter 307, Public Laws 
of North Carolina) . Therefore it is 

Ordered, That as early as practicable after the expiration of the time 
limit for filing Annual Reports, the Chief Clerk shall examine the records 
of this office and furnish the Commissioner with a list of any and all utilities, 
according to record, which have failed to file report required by law. 

All such delinquents, upon direction of the Commission, shall be notified 
by the Chief Clerk, under the Seal of this Commission, to appear before the 
Commission, on date or dates to be designated by the Commissioner, to show

MUNICIPAL REPORTS 
Bulletin U-l 

The Commission hereby expresses its appreciation for the fine spirit of 
cooperation which the municipalities of the State are giving in the matter 
of filing their Annual Reports required by the Act of the last Legislature. 

The Commission stands ready to aid the municipalities in every way 
possible in this work. 

No doubt one of the purposes of the Law was that the information afforded 
by these reports would not only be valuable to the people of the State, but 
helpful to this Commission in its regulation of public utilities. In the analysis 
of these reports, which is to be made by the Commission, and for general 
information, it is deemed necessary that the Commission have on file the rate 
schedules of the various municipalities reporting; therefore it is requested 
that each municipality effected furnish this Commission, as early as possible, 
with its rate schedules for current and gas, together with the rules and regu- 
lations governing same. 

Attention is directed to the fact that those reports call for the segregation 
of the sale of energy by residential and other classes. To do this it will be 
necessary that monthly records be kept of such segregation, and it is asked 
that this be done. 

In some cases municipalities are keeping their utility operations in com- 
bined form. To meet the requirements of Annual Reports to this Com- 
mission, it will be necessary that electric and other utility service be kept 
segregated as to revenue, expenses, plant, equipment, etc. The Commission

hopes that this will be done at once in order that there may be no difficulty in 
making reports for 1934. 

March 8, 1934. 

R. O. Self, Stanley Winborne, 

Chief Clerk. Utilities Commissioner. 

EXTENSION OF TIME IN WHICH TO FILE ANNUAL REPORTS 
Bulletin No. U-2 
Owing to the fact that the date prescribed for filing Annual Reports with 
this Commission was earlier this year than usual, and for other reasons, 
the Commissioner deems it expedient to exercise some leniency in the matter 
therefore any utility now delinquent is given an extension of time until April 
1, 1934, within which to file its annual report for 1933. Any utility which 
is delinquent after the date of this blanket extension, unless permission has 
been granted by the Commissioner, will be dealt with according to the pro- 
visions in Order No. U-8. 
By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

This 14th day of March, 1934. Chief Clerk. 

MUNICIPAL ANNUAL REPORTS 
Ruling No. 1 

Owing to numerous requests from municipalities to be permitted to make 
their annual reports (electric and gas) to this Commission as of June 30 for 
the reason that their audits are made for the fiscal year ending on that date to 
conform to the Municipal Finance Act, and that to comply with the order 
of the Commission would entail considerable extra expense, the Commissioner 
has decided to accede to these requests and will accept these reports as of 
June 30 for the year 1933. 

Next year, however, the Commission will require these reports to be filed as 
of December 31, therefore, it asks that all municipalities required to make 
these reports make provision now for keeping their accounts and records so 
that this can be done. 

This the 23d day of January, 1934.

IN RE: QUARTERLY REPORTS OF RAILROAD COMPANIES TO THE 
NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMISSION 

Order 

At a meeting of the Commission on August 8, 1933, the question of the require- 
ment of quarterly reports of rail carriers was considered, the question having 
been brought forward by correspondence during the years 1931 and 1932 between 
the Commission and representatives of rail carriers operating under its juris- 
diction. 

After due consideration the Commission is of the opinion that the quarterly 
reports are not now necessary. At the time these quarterly reports were 
required of the several railroads, the Commission had before the Interstate 
Commerce Commission and in several of the courts of the country a number 

2 



18 K". 0. Corporation Commission 

of rate cases which required a close study of revenue; since these cases have 
been finally determined, the Commission is now of the opinion that these 
reports can be eliminated; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That, effective with the third quarter of the calendar year 1933, the 
several rail carriers operating under the jurisdiction of this Commission shall 
not be required to file quarterly reports with this Commission, but annual 
reports will be continued as heretofore required. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 18th day of August, 1933. Clerk. 

Docket No. 7514 (Corporation Commission). 

IN THE MATTER OP RULE AND FORM OF STATEMENT FOR THE 
HANDLING OF COMPLAINTS IN WHICH REPARATION IS SOUGHT IN 
ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 1067 OF THE CONSOLIDATED 
STATUTES AS AMENDED BY CHAPTERS 241 AND 342 OF THE PUBLIC 
LAWS OF 1929 

Order 
As a result of the amendments to Section 1067 of the Consolidated Statutes 
as enacted by the General Assembly of 1929 in Chapters 241 and 342 of the 
Public Laws, it is necessary that the Commission's Rules of Practice be 
amended and supplemented to provide for a rule to cover the proper handling 
of proceedings involving the question of reparation on past shipments, and to 
further provide a form for the proper certification of shipments on which 
reparation is requested. 

Therefore, it is ordered that page 10 of the Commission's Rules of Practice be 
amended by inserting after Rule No. 6 the following: 

Rule No. 6-A. 

Reparation Statements — Formal Claims For Reparation 
Based Upon Findings of The Commission 

When the Commission finds that reparation is due, but that the amount 
can not be ascertained upon the record before it, the complainant should 
immediately prepare a statement showing details of the shipments on 
which reparation is claimed, in accordance with Form No. 1. ( See Appendix 
"A.") The statement should not include any shipment not covered by 
the Commission's findings, or any shipment on which complaint was not 
filed with the Commission within the statutory period. (See Consolidated 
Statutes, Section 1067, as amended by Chapters 241 and 342 of Public Laws 
1929.) The statement, together with the paid freight bills on the ship- 
ments, or true copies thereof, should then be forwarded to the carrier which 
collected the charges for checking and certification as to its accuracy. 
The certificate must be signed in ink by a general accounting officer of the 
carrier and should cover all of the information shown in the statement. 
If the carrier which collected the charges is not a defendant in the case 
Its certificate must be concurred in by like signature on behalf of a carrier 
defendant. 
By order of the Commission : R. O. Self, 

This 1st day of August, 1933. Clerk.

DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS OF COMPLAINTS 
Electric Light, Gas and Power Companies 

IN RE: PETITION CAROLINA CENTRAL GAS COMPANY, HENDERSON- 
VILLE, FOR REDUCTION OF RATES 

Order 

This petition was filed with the Commission on March 27th, 1934, and, being 
a request for reduction, was not set for hearing. 

The present rates of the petitioner for domestic service applying to resi- 
dences, cooking, water heating, space heaters and general domestic use is as 
follows: 

First 500 cu. ft. used in one month, $1.60. 
Next 4,500 cu. ft. used per month, $1.80 per M. 
All over 5,000 cu. ft. used per month, $1.10 per M. 

The petitioner now desires to reduce this rate to the following: 

First 500 cu. ft. used in one month, $1.60 
Next, 4,500 cu. ft. used per month, $1.60 per M. 
All over 5,000 cu. ft. used per month, $1.10 per M. 

A prompt payment discount of ten cents from minimum bill of first 500 cu. 
ft. and ten cents per thousand on balance shall be allowed for payment on or 
before ten days from date of bill. It is, therefore 

Ordered, That petition be granted, effective on meter readings on or after 
April 1st, 1934. 

The petitioner also asks that the minimum charge for house and space heat- 
ing be increased from $1.00 to $3.00 per month, and inasmuch as the petitioner 
has only nine such consumers at this time and the increase would raise some 
of these, it is thought that the increase requested is too great and that minimum 
should be set at $2.00 per month for such customers, since this petition is 
largely an adjustment of rates and reduces all present customers of other 
classes and will not increase existing customers of this class, therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petitioner be authorized to increase the minimum house 
and space heating rate from $1.00 to $2.00 per month, per customer. 

By order of the Utilities Commission: 

This the Seventeenth Day of April, 1934.

Docket 58 (Utilities Commission). 

IN THE MATTER OF THE RATES OF THE CAROLINA POWER & LIGHT 

COMPANY 

Order 
The Commission, pursuant to its orders of July 21 and August 2, 1932, 
respectively, has held numerous conferences with the Carolina Power & 
Light Company with a view to securing reductions in the rates of this company 
for electric energy to meet the existing conditions. This Company has pre- 
sented schedules of reduced rates for residential lighting service which they 
agree to put into effect for their customers throughout the State of North 
Carolina. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 21 

The schedules proposed will take the place of a number of schedules which 
have been in effect in various communities within the territory served by that 
Company. The effect of the schedules proposed will be to afford to its resi- 
dential lighting consumers in North Carolina a saving, computed from past 
bills, of an amount in excess of one hundred and twenty thousand ($120,000.00) 
dollars annually. 

The new rates also go far toward meeting the Commission's views as to simpli- 
fication and uniformity. All minimum charges throughout the Company's 
territory for this class of service will be reduced to one ($1.00) dollar per 
month; it is now, therefore, by consent, 

Ordered, adjudged and decreed, That Schedules R.L.-l, R.L.-2, W.R.L.-l and 
G.L.-l for residential customers are hereby abrogated and cancelled as of 
December 1, 1932; but Schedule G.L.-l for commercial lighting service shall 
remain in effect. 

It is further ordered, adjudged and decreed by consent, That the rate 
schedule marked "Schedule R.L.-3" hereto attached be, and the same is hereby 
approved; and the Carolina Power & Light Company is ordered and directed to 
place said schedule into effect and make the same applicable to residential 
lighting service beginning with bills rendered on and after December 1, 1932. 

It is further ordered, adjudged and decreed by consent, That schedule 
marked "Schedule R.L.-4" hereto attached be, and the same is hereby approved 
as an alternate and optional rate; and the Carolina Power & Light Company 
is ordered and directed to place said schedule into effect and make same applica- 
ble to residential lighting service beginning with bills rendered on and after 
December 1, 1932. It shall be the duty of the Carolina Power & Light Company 
during the period of twelve months from and after December 1, 1932, to bill 
each residential lighting consumer each month under the residential lighting 
schedule more favorable to said consumer. At the end of said twelve months' 
period each such consumer shall have the right to elect the one of said schedules 
which such consumer may desire. If a consumer fails and neglects to make the 
election provided for herein within fifteen days from and after the aforesaid 
twelve months' period, the Company may thereafter bill such consumer under 
the schedule proven to be more beneficial to such consumer, based on the 
consumer's monthly use of service during the previous twelve months' period. 
No consumer shall have the right to change from one schedule to the other 
schedule more than once during any twelve months' period. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

Clerk.

cessors, except one franchise which was issued in 1917 to the Asheville Electric 
Company, a predecessor of Carolina Power & Light Company, by the munici- 
pality of West Asheville, which municipality of West Asheville, pursuant to an 
Act of the General Assembly of North Carolina, was subsequently included

IN THE MATTER OP DISCONTINUING THE OPERATION OF STREET 
RAILWAY CARS OVER CAROLINA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY'S GLEN- 
WOOD AVENUE LINE WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE LIMITS OF THE 
CITY OF RALEIGH, AND SUBSTITUTING THE OPERATION OF MOTOR 
BUSSES THEREFOR OVER A PORTION OF SAID LINE 

Order 

A hearing upon the petition of the Carolina Power & Light Company in the 
above entitled matter was held by the Commission on January 7, 1932, after 
public notice thereof was duly given, as provided by law, and the Commission 
made an order authorizing the discontinuance of the operation of certain of 
the street cars of the Carolina Power & Light Company, and the substitution of 
busses therefor, as set forth in said order; that exceptions were filed to said 
order by M. A. Rushton on the ground that the Commission was without 
authority to grant such an order, and upon the further ground that said order 
was discriminatory, in that the busses to be substituted were to be operated 
over only a portion of the abandoned street car line. The exceptions filed 
were overruled by the Commission, and an appeal was taken to the Superior 
Court. 

It is now made to appear to the Commission that said appeal has been aban- 
doned, and that the Carolina Power & Light Company and said M. A. Rushton 
have reached an agreement whereby the Carolina Power & Light Company 
has agreed to operate busses from Lassiter's Mill Road Crossing along Lassiter's 
Mill Road to Lakeside Drive upon schedules hereinafter recited, and the said 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 25 

parties now ask the Commission to amend its said former order so as to incor- 
porate the terms of their agreement: 

It Is, Therefore, Ordered, Adjudged and Decreed, That the order of the 
Commission entered in the above entitled matter be amended to the end that 
the Carolina Power & Light Company, upon the discontinuance of operation 
of its Glenwood Avenue street car line extending beyond the city limits in the 
vicinity of the Carolina Country Club, shall be and it is hereby required to ex- 
tend the operation of bus service, which is to be substituted for street cars, 
along the Lassiter's Mill Road from the Lassiter's Mill Road Crossing on Glen- 
wood Avenue Northward to Lakeside Drive, when and if said road from the 
Lassiter's Mill Road Crossing to Lakeside Drive shall be improved by the 
State Highway Commission and hardsurfaced by the use of crushed stone or 
gravel base to be finished with a tar or asphalt top as proposed by the State 
Highway Commission. The operation of said motor bus service along the 
Lassiter's Mill Road may be restricted by Carolina Power & Light Company to 
the operation each day of one bus thereover at approximately the following 
hours: 

7:30 a. m., 8:30 a. m., 9:30 a. m., 1:30 p. m., 2:30 p. m., 3:30 p. m., 
6:30 p. m., 7:30 p. m., 10:30 p. m., 

and the said bus service shall be operated, or cause to be operated, upon the 
aforesaid schedule by the Carolina Power & Light Company during the remain- 
der of the term of its electric and street railway franchise granted to the 
Raleigh Electric Company on May 24, 1905. 

The Carolina Power & Light Company shall not, in any event, be required 
to maintain said bus service along the Lassiter's Mill Road as hereinbefore 
provided, unless and until the road is improved as aforesaid and unless and 
until it may lawfully abandon its street car line extending in the vicinity of the 
Carolina Country Club, and unless and until the contract between the City of 
Raleigh and the Carolina Power & Light Company, dated November 28, 1931, is 
held to be a lawful contract and Carolina Power & Light Company is lawfully 
permitted to abandon its Glenwood Avenue street sar line and substitute busses 
therefor in accordance with the terms and provisions of said contract.

IN THE MATTER OF: CAROLINA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY DISCON- 
TINUING THE OPERATION OF ITS SYSTEM OF ELECTRIC STREET 
CARS OVER THE STREETS OF RALEIGH AND SUBSTITUTING THE 
OPERATION OF MOTOR BUSSES THEREFOR 

Order 

This cause coming on to be heard, and being heard, before the North Caro- 
lina Corporation Commission at 10 o'clock a. m. January 24, 1933, upon the 
petition heretofore filed by the Carolina Power & Light Company, and it 
appearing to the Commission, and the Commission finding as facts: 

1 
That the Carolina Power & Light Company, a public service corporation duly 
filed its petition herein with the Commission on the 12th day of January, 1933, 
and that the Commission on said date issued an order providing for a public 
hearing upon said petition at 10 o'clock a. m. January 24, 1933, and providing 
further that notice of said public hearing be published in the Raleigh News & 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 27 

Observer and the Raleigh Times, two daily newspapers of general circulation 
published in the City of Raleigh, and that pursuant to said order, said notice 
was duly published. 

2 

That no answer to said petition has been filed and no written protest has 
been made against the granting of an order approving the prayer of said 
petition, so that this matter now comes on for hearing without any opposition 
or objection filed with, or made known to, this Commission. 

3 

That the Carolina Power & Light Company owns an electric street railway 
system, which it operates wholly within the City of Raleigh, except a portion 
of one line thereof, known as its Glenwood Avenue line, which extends beyond 
the City limits to the vicinity of the Carolina Country Club, but an order has 
been heretofore issued by this Commission dated January 7th, 1932, authoriz- 
ing the discontinuance of the operation of electric street cars over said Glen- 
wood Avenue line, and providing for the operation of motor busses in lieu 
thereof. That the petitioner, Carolina Power & Light Company, also operates 
a bus line from a point at or near the intersection of Home Street with Hills- 
boro Street westwardly over Highway No. 10 to Meredith College. 



That the petitioner, Carolina Power & Light Company, and the City of 
Raleigh, in order to provide a more adequate city-wide system of public trans- 
portation, entered into a contract dated January 3rd, 1933, a copy of which 
is attached to the petition, marked "Exhibit A" and made a part thereof, 
providing for the discontinuance of the operation of petitioner's electric street 
oars over all its lines within the City of Raleigh, other than the Glenwood 
Avenue line referred to in the Commission's said order dated January 7th, 
1932, and the operation of motor busses in lieu thereof over revised routes 
and for a new schedule of fares, all to be done and performed only upon ap- 
proval of this Commission, and as a continuing performance of the petitioner's 
obligation to furnish a public transportation system in the City of Raleigh. 



That the rate or fares of the Carolina Power & Light Company, which is 
presently being charged for passage over petitioner's street car system, are 
those which are provided by the order of this commission dated November 
25, 1921 in force at this time. That the said petitioner is also charging a fare 
for passage over its bus line extending from the intersection of Home Street 
with Hillsboro Street to Meredith College of the same amount as charged 
under the Commission's said order of November 25, 1921 for trips on its 
electric street cars. 

6 

That the petitioner under said contract of January 3rd, 1933, with the City 
of Raleigh, constituting "Exhibit A" to the petition, as well also as by its 
petition now under consideration herein, has consented that the former order 
of this Commission relating to fares dated November 25, 1921, be rescinded and 
that a new fare be adopted, which shall be five cents for all persons, except 



28 JST. C. Corporation Commission 

children under four years of age when accompanied by a paying passenger, as 
set forth in said contract constituting "Exhibit A," and by its petition has also 
consented that said proposed new fare be made applicable to its Glenwood 
Avenue bus line, when put in operation, and that the fare for passage on the 
bus line west of the intersection of Home Street with Hillsboro Street also 
be reduced to five cents, in the event an order is made authorizing the substitu- 
tion of motor busses throughout the city, as sought by the petition. 



Upon investigation this Commission is of the opinion, and, therefore, finds 
as a fact that the substitution of motor bus transportation in lieu of electric 
street cars, and the removal and/or abandonment of its present street car 
trackage and equipment, according to the terms of said agreement of January 
3, 1933, will enhance, promote and benefit the public necessity and convenience. 

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED: 

1. That the contract entered into between the Carolina Power & Light 
Company and the City of Raleigh dated January 3rd, 1933, copy of which is 
attached to the petition herein marked "Exhibit A" and made a part thereof, 
be and the same is, in all respects, hereby approved, and the Carolina Power & 
Light Company is hereby authorized and empowered to perform the conditions 
thereof, and particularly to permanently discontinue the operation of all of its 
electric street cars throughout the city of Raleigh, to abandan and/or remove its 
railway trackage and equipment as provided for in said contract, all upon 
condition that said Carolina Power & Light Company substitute the operation 
of motor busses for the electric street railway cars, which are to be discon- 
tinued; said busses to be operated upon such schedules as are necessary to 
meet its franchise obligations in that respect, and upon the routes designated 
in said contract, with the right to hereafter change the routing of said busses 
by agreement between Carolina Power & Light Company and the City of 
Raleigh. 

2. That the order of this Commission fixing fares for passengers on 
petitioner's street cars, dated October 25, 1925, is hereby rescinded. That 
until further ordered, the fare for all persons, including school pupils and 
teachers taking passage on said motor busses is hereby ordered to be five cents 
for one continuous trip, except, however, no fare is to be charged to children 
under four years of age accompanied by a paying passenger; provided that the 
intersection of Home Street with Hillsboro Street shall be, and is hereby made 
the terminus for one continuous trip for all passengers originating, or making 
their destination, east of said point, and provided further, that said intersection 
shall be, and is hereby made the terminus a continuous trip for all passengers 
originating or making their destination, west of said point. Subject to all 
the provisions of this paragraph any passenger, paying the fare for one con- 
tinuous trip, shall be entitled to receive, upon request, and without additional 
charge, one transfer ticket, provided no transfer ticket shall be good for 
transportation over the Hillsboro-Meredith line West of Home Street, and 
no transfer ticket shall be issued to any east bound passenger originating 
west of Home Street on said line, unless and until said passenger has paid 
the additional fare from Home Street. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 29 

3. That the operation of the busses under the terms and conditions of this 
order, and as provided for in the contract of January 3, 1933, entered into 
between the petitioner and the City of Raleigh, is to be in all respects a con- 
tinuing performance of the petitioner's franchise obligation to furnish public 
transportation in the City of Raleigh. 

4. That the operation of motor busses, provided for herein, is a public 
necessity and will promote and enhance the convenience of the public, and a 
certificate of convenience and necessity, authorizing the operation of said 
busses, is hereby ordered to be issued to Carolina Power & Light Company under 
Chapter 455 of the Public Laws of 1931. 

5. That the cost of publishing the notices of this hearing shall be paid by 
the petitioner, Carolina Power & Light Company.

IN RE: PETITION FOR FIVE-CENT BUS FARE BETWEEN POINTS IN 

RALEIGH AND MEREDITH COLLEGE AND INTERVENTION PETITION 

FOR THE EXTENSION OF THE FIVE-CENT FARE ZONE TO DIXIE 

TRAIL 

Okdek 

This matter came on to be heard and was heard on the twenty-ninth day 
of November, 1933, at ten o'clock a.m., notice being duly given to petitioners 
and to the respondent, Carolina Power & Light Company. 

There were present at the hearing representatives of Meredith College, 
representatives of the residents living just within and outside the city limits 
of Raleigh within the area contiguous to Hillsboro Street, which, beyond the 
city limits, is known as Hillsboro Road, and representatives of the respondent, 
Carolina Power & Light Company. Full opportunity was given to all interested 
parties to present any facts bearing upon the question at issue. 

Upon the showing made by the petitioners and the respondent, the representa- 
tives of Meredith College contended that the respondent should be required 
to charge not more than a five-cent fare per one-way trip on its buses between 
points within the City and Meredith College, which is located at the station 
of Method, which is approximately three and one-half miles west of the business 
section of the City of Raleigh. The residents living between Home Street 
and the city limits contended that the respondent should be required to extend 
the application of the five-cent fare to a point of intersection between Dixie 
Trail and Hillsboro Road. The residents living immediately inside of the 
city limits but west of Horne Street, within the area contiguous to Hillsboro 
Street, contended that respondent should be required to extend all buses now 
stopping at Horne Street to the city limits without charge of fare. 

From the facts presented at the hearing by the respondent and the petitioners, 
it appears that respondent, prior to March 15, 1933, operated an electric street 
railway system wholly within the City of Raleigh, except one line thereof 
which extended beyond the northwest limits of the City into the vicinity of the 



30 ]ST. C. Corporation Commission 

Carolina Country Club; that during 1925, the present Meredith College plant 
was completed and the college moved from within the City of Raleigh to its 
present location at the station of Method, North Carolina, west of the City 
of Raleigh; that representatives of Meredith College, before the opening of the 
college at its present location, sought to have respondent construct an electric 
street railway line from the terminus of its Hillsboro Street line, at a point 
near the present intersection of Home and Hillsboro Streets, to Meredith 
College, but respondent declined, on account of economic reasons, to construct 
the extension, but, by an agreement with the representatives of the college, 
respondent began the operation of a bus from the terminus of its Hillsboro Street 
railway line and, by agreement, began to charge a separate fare for passengers 
riding thereon; that the bus was operated separate and apart from the street 
railway system, except that respondent, as a matter of convenience to the 
faculty and students of Meredith College and people residing in that vicinity, 
attempted to operate its said bus on schedules which would connect with the 
schedules of the street railway system. 

It appears from respondent's statement of operating revenues and expenses, 
which has not been verified by the Commission, that the revenues from the 
operation of said bus were insufficient to pay operating expenses, taxes, and 
licenses, and that respondent received nothing as interest upon its investment 
and was not able to set up a depreciation reserve. Prior to March 15, 1933, the 
fare charged on said bus was eight cents from Meredith College to Home Street, 
where conection was made with one of respondent's street cars, and persons 
going from Meredith College to points within the City east of Horne Street or 
in the reverse direction paid two fares. On or about March 15, 1933, respondent 
discontinued the operation of its electric street railway within the City of 
Raleigh and substituted motor buses therefor. It had theretofore charged a 
fare of eight cents, or sold two tickets for fifteen cents. At the time of the 
substitution of motor buses, respondent voluntarily reduced the fare from 
eight cents to five cents, under an agreement with the City of Raleigh, which 
was approved by the Corporation Commission, with the understanding that 
the reduction was to be an experiment for a period of twelve months and that 
the respondent should thereafter have the right to apply to the Commission 
for an increase in the fare if its revenues from the operation of the buses 
proved to be inadequate. 

The petitioners offered no facts or evidence in impeachment of the figures 
offered by respondent with respect to revenues and operating expenses. 

The respondent called attention to the fact that its bus system is being 
operated under an agreement with the City of Raleigh and that the intention 
of the parties is to provide a transportation system for the City and those 
residing within the City; that the service which it has undertaken to furnish 
beyond the city limits has been voluntary; That the interest of the City, which 
issued its franchise to the respondent, should be given primary consideration 
in view of the possibility that an order requiring respondent to inaugurate a 
five-cent fare to Dixie Trail or to Meredith College might ultimately have a 
very great influence in increasing the fare throughout the City and lose to the 
citizens that which they are now enjoying under the five-cent fare; that there 
are conditions and circumstances surrounding those living beyond the city 
limits which more than compensate them for the additional fare which they are 
now charged for transportation. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 31 

It also appeared that the respondent is operating a line of buses to a point 
outside the city limits on the northwest side of the City without charging an 
additional fare. This last referred to line was inaugurated under an order 
of the Commission in lieu of a street car line which had been established and 
operated for a period of more than twenty years in connection with the city 
street railway system. The facts presented at this hearing tended to show 
that this line of street railway was operated by respondent at a considerable 
loss and that the present buses (which make only nine schedules per day under 
the Commission's order) are operated at a loss considerably greater than the 
average loss which the respondent now claims to be suffering over the whole 
system, but it appears that respondent has rendered this service over a period 
of years which probably caused residents in that section to make investments 
that would otherwise not have been made; while the service to Meredith 
College was inaugurated after all parties to the contract referred to had agreed 
that the service could not be rendered at a five-cent fare. 

It does not appear that the inclusion of that part of the line between Home 
Street and the city limits within the five-cent zone will materially increase 
the losses which respondent now claims to be suffering. The Commission is 
of the opinion that the respondent should be required to establish a single 
fare to the city limits on Hillsboro Street upon such of its buses as are now 
being operated along Hillsboro Street from the point of its intersection with 
Home Street to and beyond the city limits, and the Commission is not of the 
opinion that the respondent should now be required to extend the single fare 
beyond the city limits; it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the respondent be, and it is hereby, required to inaugurate a 
single fare of five cents between points within the City of Raleigh on the 
Hillsboro Street line, but respondent shall have the right to charge an addi- 
tional fare of five cents to and from points beyond the city limits on said 
Hillsboro Street line. It is, 

Further ordered, That passengers traveling westward along Hillsboro Street 
upon respondent's buses which do not go west of Home Street shall be entitled 
to a transfer, without additional charge, and such transfer shall entitle any 
such passenger to transportation upon the Meredith College bus from Home 
Street to the point where the present corporate limits of the City of Raleigh 
intersect Hillsboro Street.

IN THE MATTER OP THE RATES OF THE DUKE POWER COMPANY AND 
SOUTHERN PUBLIC UTILITIES COMPANY 

Order 

The Commission, pursuant to its orders of July 21 and August 2, 1932, 
respectively, has held numerous conferences with Duke Power Company and 
Southern Public Utilities Company with a view to securing reductions in the 
rates of these Companies for electric energy to meet the existing conditions. 
These Companies have presented schedules of reduced rates which they propose 
to put into effect for their respective customers in North Carolina, subject 
to the terms and conditions set forth in and made a part of the sdhedules. 
Both the reduced rates and the terms and conditions on which they are to be 
made effective have been worked out in conferences between representatives 
of the Companies and the Commission, assisted by its staff. 

The proposed schedules will, in our opinion, afford the maximum amount 
of relief obtainable under prevailing conditions and will make this relief 
immediately available to the public, as each of the Companies has agreed to 
waive all legal formalities and make the reduced rates effective as of November 
1, 1932. 

The Commission is free to proceed with its investigation and studies of 
rates, holding any hearings it may desire for that purpose, for acceptance of 
these tentative rates which the conditions attached in no wise hinders or re- 
stricts the Commission in this respect; it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That Duke Power Company and Southern Public Utilities Company, 
be, and they are hereby, permitted to file with this Commission the schedules 
of rates which these Companies have this day submitted to the Commission, 
and said schedules are hereby approved, subject to the terms and conditions 
stated in them, as the rates to be charged by said Companies for the classes 
of service named in said schedules from and after the first day of November, 
A. D. 1932; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall be construed 
to limit or restrict in any manner the future exercise of the Commission's 
powers in respect to the rates of said Companies. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This November 14, 1932. Clerk. 

STATEMENT BY W. T. LEE, CHAIRMAN, NORTH CAROLINA CORPORA- 
TION COMMISSION 

• Issued November 14, 1932 

To the first proposition made by the Southern Public Utilities Company, the 
Corporation Commission refused to agree because of the string tied to it, 
that after six months' trial the Company could automatically restore the old 
rates after giving sixty days' notice. The Commission, notwithstanding 
such an agreement, would have the power to call a hearing and go into 
the whole matter of rates of the Southern Public Utilities Company, which 
would necessitate a lengthy hearing and investigation with attendant un- 
certainty of the result; but the company has come forward and agreed that the 
amended rate be put into effect for a period of nine months with ninety days' 
notice of their intention to ask for a termination of these reduced rates, which 
will insure these rates for one year. This is a reduction that we conceive to 



34 



"N. C. Coepoeation Commission 



be a reasonable concession, which will save to the customers of this company 
in North Carolina approximately $900,000 annually. We have reason to hope 
that these rates will become permanent and after long and careful considera- 
tion, the Commission has decided to accept the company's proposition, feeling 
that it could not deny to the public this immediate relief, since its acceptance 
in no way prevents further investigation and determination of what the rate 
should be. 



CHART 



Notes on The Duke Power and Southern Public Utilities Proposal 

The graph shows at a glance the Southern Public Utilities Company's old 
rate, the new rate, and the average rate of the 177 cities of over 50,000 popu- 
lation in the United States. It will be observed that the rate offered by the 
Southern Public Utilities Company is under that of the 177 cities. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 35 

It is difficult to determine with accuracy the saving to consumers in as huge a 
system as that of the Duke Power and Southern Public Utilities Companies, 
but it is estimated the reduction will be as follows: 

Residential Service $ 453,000 

Commercial Lighting 216,000 

Power 50,000 

Gas 89,000 

Total S. P. U. Company $ 808,000 

Duke Power Company 549,000 

Gross Reduction $1,357,000 

of which gross more than $900,000 accrues to consumers in North Carolina. 

The two rates in the proposal that affect the largest number of users are the 
residential rate and the commercial lighting rate. These are: 

Residential Rate 

Flat charge per customer per month $1.00 

Meter charge: 

First 150 kw-hr 3%c per kw-hr 

Excess 3 c per kw-hr 

Commercial Lighting Rate 

First 10 kw-hr or less used per month $1.00 

Next 590 kw-hr _ 6 c per kw-hr 

Next 400 kw-hr 4 c per kw-hr 

All consumption in excess of 

1,000 kw-hr used per month 1.9 c per kw-hr 

Dr. Chas. E. Waddell, Consulting Engineer to the Corporation Commission, 
commenting on the offer made by the Duke Power and Southern Public 
Utilities Companies, said: 

"The offer comes nearer meeting the objective set up by the Commission 
than any offer yet received. The Commisson asked for 'a uniform rate apply- 
ing to domestic service of every description.' The Southern Public Utilities 
Company meets this stipulation and goes farther and extends it to all communi- 
ties, large and small, without discrimination. 

"The Commission asked for 'a schedule of rates so simple that the ordinary 
consumer could understand them.' The Southern Public Utilities Company's 
domestic rate is easily understood. There is a charge of $1.00, and the first 
150 kw-hr cost 3%c. A consumer needs only to take his meter reading, multiply 
it by 3%c and add a dollar, to compute his own bill. 

"The commercial lighting rate is equally simple and also applies to the 
whole system. The simplicity and significance of the rate should be recognized 
by the public and contrasted with the rates of other companies recording 'load 
factors,' 'demand factors' and the* like. As an example, some companies count 
the number of lights in a commercial installation and charge a specified sum per 
light and in addition charge for the current the meter records. Such schedules 
are confusing and difficult to understand and may even work a hardship on the 
consumer. 

"The new domestic rate would tend to raise the bill of the very small con- 
sumer, but the Southern Public Utilities Company meets this obstacle by filing 
a new General Lighting Schedule which gives an appreciable reduction to all 
consumers over one dollar. 



36 "N. C. Corporation Commission 

"Personally I would advise the consumers to select the new residential 
schedule for if a consumer uses in excess of 28 kw-hr per month, the new rate 
is cheaper. While some small consumers might drop below 28 kw-hr in the 
summer months, the probabilities are that they will exceed 28 kw-hr in the 
winter months, and the total bill for the year would actually be less under 
the new rate. The new rate further permits the use of domestic devices of 
every description such as irons, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, sewing 
machines, refrigerators, motors for furnaces, and similar devices now used 
in the homes. 

"A saving to North Carolina consumers of over $900,000 annually, effected by 
conference and without lawsuit, and at no cost to the taxpayers, at a time 
when immediate relief is needed during the period of depression, ought to be 
of some slight value."

IN RE: PETITION OP J. G. HAMMOND FOR CERTIFICATE OF PUBLIC 
CONVENIENCE AND NECESSITY 

Order 

This is the petition of J. G. Hammond for the construction of an electric 
power plant for the generation of electricity and for certain distribution lines 
in connection therewith, power to be furnished from water wheels owned and 
operated by the Davenport Milling Company. The water wheels, waterhouse 
and power equipment is already installed and running. 

The Commission has served notice of this petition upon the Carolina Power 
& Light Company and the Company advises that it is not interested and 
at least has no objection to the proposed construction. From investigation, 
it appears that the territory proposed to be served is adjacent to the terri- 
tory now being served by the City of Rocky Mount and the Carolina Power 
& Light Company, but the immediate territory which the petitioner in this 
case proposes to serve has no electric service and no immediate prospect of 
same from other operating companies. 

Therefore, this Commission finds that public convenience and necessity will 
be served by the granting of this petition, 

Therefore, it is ordered, That the petition be granted and that J. G. Ham- 
mond, the petitioner, is hereby authorized to construct plant and distribution 
lines as requested in petition filed on September the sixth, 1934. 

By order of the Commission. Stanley "Winrorne,

IN THE MATTER OF THE APPLICATION OF THE SOUTHERN PUBLIC 
UTILITIES COMPANY FOR A CERTIFICATE OF PUBLIC CON- 
VENIENCE AND NECESSITY AUTHORIZING IT TO MAINTAIN AND 
OPERATE A MOTOR BUS ROUTE IN CONNECTION WITH ITS 
STREET RAILWAY SYSTEM IN THE CITY OF CHARLOTTE 

Order 
This cause was originally set for hearing before the Utilities Commission 
of the State of North Carolina, at ten 10 o'clock a.m., on Friday, January 29, 
1934, and coming on for hearing at that time was continued until July 13, 
1934, at eleven o'clock a.m., when said cause was heard at the office of the 
Commission, in the State Department Building, at the corner of Edenton 
and Salisbury Streets, in the City of Raleigh. 

The Commission finds the following facts: 

1. The Southern Public Utilities Company, a public service corporation, 
duly filed with the Commission its petition in the above entitled matter on 
June 9, 1934, and the Commission on June 18, 1934, duly made and entered 
its order directing that a public hearing on said petition be held at the office 
of the Commission in the State Department Building, at the corner of Edenton 
and Salisbury Streets, in the City of Raleigh, at twelve o'clock noon, on 
Friday, June 29, 1934, and that notice of said hearing be given to the public 
by publication in three consecutive issues of the Charlotte Observer and 
the Charlotte News, daily newspapers regularly published in the City of 
Charlotte, and having a general circulation within said City and the sur- 
rounding territory. Pursuant to said order notice of said hearing was duly 
published in three consecutive issues of the Charlotte News beginning with 
the issue of June 19, 1934, and also in three consecutive issues of the Charlotte 
Observer beginning with the issue of June 19, 1934. 

2. At the hearing on June 29, 1934, W. H. McGruder intervened and filed 
a petition asking the Commission for a certificate of public convenience and 
necessity to be issued to himself, his heirs and assigns, permitting him to 
operate a passenger motor bus transportation system wholly within the city 
limits in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, upon any and all of its 
avenues, streets or roadways open to public traffic for the purpose of furnishing 
to the City of Charlotte a modern transportation system operating between 
fixed termini upon regular schedules between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 
11:00 p.m., from the outlined termini of the system direct to the business 
district of the City of Charlotte, upon such routes and schedules as may be 
approved by the Commission. The petition of the intervenor suggested the 
following proposed rates of fare, subject to the approval of the Commission, 
7c cash, or 4 tickets for 25c, and a school children's fare of 5c. The inter- 
venor further suggested that such certificate of convenience and necessity 
be issued in such form that the certificate might be transferred to a corpora- 
tion to be formed to be known as Charlotte Motor Coaches, Inc. 

3. This Commission continued the hearing until July 13, 1934. Since the 
date of the original hearing the intervenor, W. H. McGruder, has made applica- 
tion to the Mayor and City Council of the City of Charlotte, North Carolina, 
for a franchise to operate the proposed passenger motor bus transportation 
system referred to in the preceding paragraph, and the Southern Public 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 45 

Utilities Company has made application to said Mayor and City Council for 
authority to establish, maintain and operate the motor bus route referred 
to in the petition of said Southern Public Utilities Company filed in this 
cause, said motor bus route to be established, maintained and operated by 
said Southern Public Utilities Company under its existing franchise from 
the City of Charlotte, and in connection with and as a part of its present 
transportation system in said city. The applications of said McGruder and 
of said Southern Public Utilities Company were considered and acted upon 
by the Mayor and City Council of the City of Charlotte, at the regular meeting 
held on July 11, 1934, when the application of said McGruder was denied 
and the Southern Public Utilities Company was granted authority to operate 
the motor bus route proposed by it, as will appear by ordinance duly passed 
by said Council at said meeting, a copy of which is hereto attached and made 
a part of this order. 

4. The petitioner, Southern Public Utilities Company, now owns and holds 
the franchise originally granted to the Charlotte Street Railway Company 
by the City of Charlotte on September 29, 1886, granting to said company 
the right to build, maintain and operate a street railway in and upon the 
entire length of any and all streets, avenues and alleys of the City of 
Charlotte, with the right to use as motive power any power now used or 
which may be invented or applied in the future, provided the same be noise- 
less and not detrimental to public safety. The Southern Public Utilities 
Company now owns and operates, and for a number of years has owned 
and operated, the street railway system in the City of Charlotte under said 
franchise. Among the lines of street railway owned and operated by peti- 
tioner are three lines extending from the center of said City to the eastern 
section thereof known as the Dilworth line, Myers Park line, and Elizabeth 
line. In April 1934 a number of citizens of the City of Charlotte residing 
in the Dilworth section of said City filed with the City Council a petition 
requesting the Council to take up with petitioner the question of extending 
its street railway service or other means of transportation from the inter- 
section of Dilworth Road East and East Boulevard along East Boulevard in 
an Easterly direction to Sugaw Creek. On April 18, 1934 the City Council of 
the City of Charlotte forwarded said petition to petitioner with the request 
that the proposed transportation service be provided if practicable. 

5. The petitioner proposes to establish and operate a motor bus route in 
connection with its Dilworth, Myers Park and Elizabeth Street railway lines 
as follows, to wit: 

Beginning at the intersection of East Boulevard and Dilworth Road West, 
at a point of connection with petitioner's Dilworth street railway line; and 
running thence in an Easterly direction along East Boulevard across Sugaw 
Creek to Sherwood Avenue; thence along Sherwood Avenue in an Easterly 
direction to Hertford Road; thence North along Hertford Road to Hopedale 
Avenue; thence East along Hopedale Avenue to Providence Road intersecting 
and connecting at Providence Road with petitioner's Myers Park street railway 
line; thence North along Providence Road to Cottage Place; thence East 
along Cottage Place to Cherokee Road; thence North along Cherokee Road to 
Laurel Avenue; thence East along Laurel Avenue to Cresent Avenue; thence 
West along Crescent Avenue to Hawthorne Lane; thence North along Haw- 
thorne Lane to Elizabeth Avenue, connecting with petitioner's Elizabeth and 
Myers Park street railway lines; thence West along Elizabeth Avenue to 
Travis Street; thence North along Travis Street to East Fifth Street; thence 



46 N. C. Corporation Commission 

East along East Fifth Street to Hawthorne Lane; thence along Hawthorne 
Lane to Crescent Avenue; thence returning along the route aforesaid to Dil- 
worth Road and East Boulevard; thence North along Dilworth Road East 
to Islesworth Street; thence West along Islesworth Street to Dilworth Road 
West; thence South along Dilworth Road West to the point of beginning. 

6. The proposed motor bus line will connect with petitioner's Dilworth 
street railway line and provide the additional transportation service requested 
in the petition filed with the City Council by the citizens of Dilworth, and 
in addition it will connect with petitioner's Myers Park street railway line 
and its Elizabeth Street railway line, and will provide a much more extensive 
service than the service requested in said petition. The proposed motor 
bus route will cover a distance each way of 4.2 miles, and will make trans- 
portation service available to 890 families, 7 churches, 4 schools, 2 hospitals, 
21 stores, and one sub-postoffice. 

7. Petitioner proposes to operate the proposed motor bus route in connec- 
tion with its street railway system in the City of Charlotte; the fares for 
the carriage of passengers over said route will be the same as those main- 
tained on other parts of petitioner's street railway system, and passengers 
will be transferred between said motor bus route and the petitioner's street 
railway line at the following points: (a) at the intersection of East Boule- 
vard and Dilworth Road East transfers will be made in connection with 
petitioner's Dilworth street railway lines; (b) at Queens Road and Providence 
Road transfers will be made in connection with petitioner's Myers Park 
street railway line; (c) at Elizabeth Avenue and Hawthorne Lane transfers 
will be made in connection with both the Elizabeth street railway line and 
the Myers Park street railway line. 

The Commission finds that it will be in the interest of public convenience 
and necessity that said proposed motor bus route be established, maintained 
and operated by said Southern Public Utilities Company. It further finds 
that the passenger motor bus transportation system proposed by the inter- 
vener, W. H. McGruder, if established and put into operation by him or his 
assigns, would constitute an unnecessary duplication of local transportation 
facilities in the City of Charlotte, and would not be in the public interest. 

Therefore, it is ordered, That the intervening petition of said W. H. Mc- 
Gruder be, and the same hereby is, denied. 

It is further ordered, That the petitioner, Southern Public Utilities Com- 
pany, be, and it hereby is, authorized and empowered to establish, maintain 
and operate under its aforesaid franchise, and as a part of and in connection 
with, its existing transportation system in the City of Charlotte, the motor 
bus route hereinbefore described. 

It is further ordered, That said Southern Public Utilities Company be, and 
it hereby is, granted a certificate of public convenience and necessity for 
the operation of said motor bus route. 

By order of the Utilities Commission of the State of North Carolina. 

This the 13th day of July, 1934. 

Stanley Winborne, 
Utilities Commissioner. 

Whereas, the Southern Public Utilities Company is now the owner and 
holder of a franchise originally granted to the Charlotte Street Railway Com-

pany by the City of Charlotte on September 29th, 1886, granting to said 
company the right to build, maintain and operate a street railway in and 
upon the entire length of any and all streets, avenues and alleys of the City 
of Charlotte, with the right to use as motive power any power now in use 
or which may be invented or applied in the future, provided the same be 
noiseless and not detrimental to public safety; 

And whereas, the Southern Public Utilities Company proposes to extend 
its present transportation service in the City of Charlotte and vicinity by 
establishing, maintaining and operating the motor bus route hereinafter 
described, now therefore:

West, at a point of connection with the Dilworth Street railway line; 
and running thence in an easterly direction along East Boulevard 
across Sugaw Creek to Sherwood Avenue; thence along Sherwood 
Avenue in an easterly direction to Hertford Road; thence North along 
Hertford Road to Hopedale Avenue; thence east along Hopedale 
Avenue to Providence Road and there connecting with the 
Myers Park street railway line; thence north along Providence 
Road to Cottage Place; thence east along Cottage Place to Cherokee 
Road; thence north along Cherokee Road to Laurel Avenue; thence 
east along Laurel Avenue to Crescent Avenue; thence west along 
Crescent Avenue to Hawthorne Lane; thence north along Hawthorne

Park Street railway lines; thence west along Elizabeth Avenue to

at the following points, to wit: (a) At the intersection of East Boulevard and 
Dilworth Road, where said motor bus route will connect with the Dilworth

and between the City of Greensboro, a municipal corporation in Guilford County, 
North Carolina, hereinafter for convenience termed "The City," and Southern 
Public Utilities Company, a corporation created by and existing under the 
laws of the State of Maine, hereinafter for convenience termed "The Company," 

WITNESSETH I 

That, whereas, by an ordinance adopted by the City Council of the City 
of Greensboro on December 18, 1928, which ordinance was duly ratified by 
a majority of those voting upon the proposition in a special election held 
in the City of Greensboro on January 29, 1929, the City of Greensboro granted 
unto the North Carolina Public Service Company a franchise for operating 
certain public utilities within the City; and, whereas, among other things 
the said franchise granted unto the said North Carolina Public Service Com- 
pany permission to maintain and operate a street railway system by means 
of electricity and to operate motor buses for the carriage of passengers upon, 
along, over and through the streets, and public ways then laid out or in 
use and all that thereafter may be laid out or put into use within and near 
the limits of said City; and, whereas, on the 1st day of July, 1932, the 
North Carolina Public Service Company assigned, set over and conveyed unto 
the Southern Public Utilities Company all of its rights, powers and privileges 
acquired by reason of the aforementioned franchise, and the latter company 
assumed all obligations therein imposed; and, whereas, it is the opinion of 
all parties hereto that the transportation service of the Company in the 
City of Greensboro will be improved by substituting more modern methods 
in place of the electric street railways provided for in the original franchise; 
and, whereas, after due notice, a public hearing was held in the City Hall of 
the City of Greensboro at 2:15 p.m., Friday, January, 5, 1934, for the purpose 
of acquainting the citizens of Greensboro regarding proposed changes in 
transportation facilities to be furnished by the Company; and, whereas, the 
said public hearing was attended by members of the City Council and a 
considerable number of interested citizens; and, whereas, the members of the 
City Council attending such meeting and all persons present who expressed 
their views regarding the proposed changes were of the unanimous opinion 
that the proposed changes in transportation service would provide for better 



50 N. C. Corporation Commission 

service and a more efficient and modern means of transportation within The 
City; and, whereas, The City has requested and The Company has agreed 
to make the changes hereinafter referred to for the sole purpose of improving 
and modernizing the transportation facilities of The Company within the 
City of Greensboro, it being the intent and purpose of neither party to deprive 
The Company of its franchise rights with respect to transportation service nor 
to relieve The Company of any of its obligations with respect thereto; 

Now, therefore, in consideration of the premises and mutual covenants of 
the parties hereto, it is hereby agreed between The City and The Company as 
follows: 

Section 1. The Company is hereby authorized and directed by The City 
to discontinue the use and operation of its electric street railway cars in the 
City of Greensboro and to abandon its rights of way acquired by its franchise 
from The City along all its present electric street railway routes within the 
City of Greensboro, such discontinuance and abandonment to be subject to the 
terms and conditions hereinafter set out. 

Section 2. The Company is hereby granted the right and privilege, which 
right and privilege The Company agrees to exercise during the remainder 
of the term of its franchise, of substituting and operating gasoline motor 
buses in lieu of its electric street railway system which extends from Jefferson 
Square along Elm street and out Asheboro street to the intersection thereof 
with Randolph avenue, it being understood and agreed that the motor bus 
service shall be extended out Asheboro street to a point not less distant than 
the intersection thereof with Benbow road. The same substitution of gasoline 
motor buses in lieu of electric street railway service shall be made and main- 
tained on the route leading from Jefferson Square along East Market street 
and Forbis street to the Southern Railway passenger station. 

The Company is hereby granted the right and privilege, which right and 
privilege The Company agrees to exercise during the remainder of the term 
of its franchise, of substituting electric trackless trolley cars in lieu of the 
present electric street railway cars along the other routes now being operated 
within the City of Greensboro, the same being designated as "The Pomona 
Mills Line," "The Glenwood Line" and "The White Oak Line." 

In order that it may be enabled to carry out the authorization herein granted 
and the obligations hereby assumed, permission is granted The Company by 
The City to install and thereafter maintain all necessary poles, guy wires, 
trollies and other equipment necessary for the substitution of the electric 
trackless trolley cars where the same are to be substituted in place of the 
present electric street railway system. The Company agrees that upon this 
agreement being approved by the North Carolina Utilities Commission it 
will promptly carry into effect the provisions hereof with respect to substitu- 
tion of transportation services within the City of Greensboro and The Com- 
pany further agrees that thereafter such substituted services will be rendered 
in an adequate, efficient, and satisfactory manner to the end that the Citizens 
of Greensboro may be provided transportation services superior to those 
now being rendered by the Company. 

Section 3. The Company agrees that it will pay as the same become due 
any and all unpaid installments, together with interest thereon, of street 
improvement assessments heretofore levied against The Company by the 
City and that the unpaid balance of such assessment, with interest thereon, 
shall continue as a prior lien against the franchise of The Company. The 
Company further agrees that on the White Oak Line it will remove all of 
its street railway tracks and ties along that portion of said route which 
lies outside of the hard surfaced streets, such portion of said route beginning 
on Summit avenue at a point approximately 350 feet north of the intersection 
thereof with Bessemer avenue and extending to the White Oak Mills. The 
Company further agrees that after the removal of its tracks and ties it 
will back-fill and level its abandoned right-of-way along such portion of its 
White Oak Mills route, the same to be properly treated with top-soil and 
seeded with grass so as to provide a suitable shoulder to the existing highway 
along the said route. The Company further agrees that upon the approval 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 51 

of this agreement by the North Carolina Utilities Commission it will promptly 
pay to the City the sum of $16,763.00 for the purpose of resurfacing the rights- 
of-way of the electric street railway system of The Company. It is understood 
that the resurfacing treatment of Spring Garden street, from Tate street 
to Park Terrace, of Glenwood Avenue, from Lee street to Grove street, of Tate 
street, from Market street to Spring Garden street, and Arlington street, 
from Gorrell street to Lee street, shall consist of two inch full penetration 
asphalt macadam. The Company hereby agrees that if such resurfacing treat- 
ment of the area within its rights-of-way on the four streets hereinbefore 
mentioned, or any portion of any such area or areas on any of the said 
streets, shall, within five years from the date of the completion thereof, fail 
to withstand traffic wear or shall fail to hold up in a manner equal to that 
of the adjacent portions of the same street outside of the right-of-way, and 
such failure is caused by reason of any fundamental defect in such area, 
then and in such event The Company will pay to the City a sum sufficient to 
defray the cost of removing the tracks and cross ties within such defective 
portion of any such area or areas and provide for the repaving of such 
portion or portions of its rights-of-way with a six-inch Portland cement con- 
crete base and a two-inch asphaltic concrete wearing surface in accordance 
with the standard paving specifications of the City of Greensboro. With 
the exception of the obligations set forth in the preceding sentence, the City 
agrees that after payment is made by the Company to the City of the sum 
of $16,763.00, The Company shall be relieved of further liability and of any 
future paving or street improvement assessments on account of its electric 
street railway rights-of-way, except that The Company shall be required to 
pay in full any unpaid installments of street improvement assessments, to- 
gether with interest, as hereinbefore stipulated. 

Section 4. It is understood and agreed by and between the parties hereto 
that, subject to the regulatory laws of the state, the fares now charged passen- 
gers on electric street cars shall be applicable to the electric trackless trolley 
cars and that the fares now charged passengers on gasoline motor buses shall 
be applicable to gasoline motor bus service, and that for a continuous trip, 
transfer tickets shall, upon demand, be issued to passengers and that for a 
continuous trip such transfers shall be acceptable for the unfinished portion 
of a continuous trip on an electric trackless trolley car or a gasoline motor bus. 
Section 5. Upon approval of this agreement by the North Carolina Utilities 
Commission The City agrees to adopt an ordinance in substantially the form 
hereto attached and made a part hereof, to the end that the provisions of this 
agreement may be formally authorized as a substitution of transportation 
service as permitted and required under the terms of the franchise heretofore 
granted to the Company. 

Section 6. Nothing contained in this agreement shall have the effect, 
by implication or otherwise, of changing, modifying, amending or re- 
pealing, or otherwise affecting or interfering with any of the rights 
and obligations of The Company to engage in the business of generat- 
ing, selling, and/or distributing electric energy for heat, light, power 
or other purposes or in any of the rights and privileges of The Company 
to engage in the business of producing, distributing or selling gas for 
illuminating, fuel and other purposes, within the corporate limits of 
The City under the franchise of The Company. If for any reason The 
City or The Company are legally prevented from carrying out the pro- 
visions of this agreement, then and in such event the same shall become 
null and void. 

Section 7. This agreement shall inure to the benefit of the successor 
or successors of The City and to the benefit of the successors and 
assigns of The Company, and, subject to the provisions of Section 6 
hereof, shall remain in full force and effect for and during the re- 
mainder of the period of the aforementioned franchise granted by The 
City to the North Carolina Public Service Company.

IN THE MATTER OF THE SUBSTITUTION OF A MOTOR BUS ROUTE IN 
PLACE OF THE ELECTRIC STREET RAILWAY LINE NOW BEING 
OPERATED BY THE SOUTHERN PUBLIC UTILITIES COMPANY IN THE 
CITY OF WINSTON-SALEM FROM THE COURTHOUSE SQUARE TO 
HOSPITAL STREET 

Order 
This cause coming on to be heard before the Utilities Commission of the 
State of North Carolina, and being heard at eleven o'clock a. m., on February 
28th, 1934, the Commission finds the following facts: 

1. The Southern Public Utilities Company, a public service corporation, 
duly filed with the Commission its petition in the above entitled matter on 
February 9, 1934, and the Commission on February 12, 1934, duly made and 
entered its order directing that a public hearing on said petition be held at the 
office of the Commission in the State Department Building at the corner of 
Edenton and Salisbury Streets in the City of Raleigh, at eleven o'clock a. m., 
on Wednesday, February 28, 1934, and that notice of said hearing be given to the 



54 1ST. C. Corporation Commission 

public by publication in three consecutive issues of the Winston-Salem Journal 
and the Twin City Sentinel, daily newspapers regularly published in the City 
of Winston-Salem, and having a general circulation within the City and the 
surrounding territory. Pursuant to said order notice of said hearing was 
duly published in the Twin City Sentinel on February 13th, 14th, and 15th, 
1934, and in the Winston-Salem Journal on February 14th, 15th and 16th, 1934. 

2. The petitioner, Southern Public Utilities Company, now owns and 
operates, and for a number of years has owned and operated, the street rail- 
way system in the City of Winston-Salem under a franchise from the City. 
One of the lines of this street railway system extends from the Courthouse 
Square to Hospital Street over and along the following route, to wit: Begin- 
ning at the Courthouse Square and extending North on Main Street to Fifth 
Street, thence East along Fifth Street to Patterson Avenue, thence South 
along Patterson Avenue to Fourth Street and thence East along Fourth Street 
to Hospital Street. 

3. The Board of Aldermen of the City of Winston-Salem by a resolution 
adopted at the regular monthly meeting held on January 12, 1934, authorized 
petitioner to abandon the operation of said street railway line from the Court- 
house Square to Hospital Street, and at the same meeting, by a resolution duly 
adopted, established a motor bus route to be operated in place of said street 
railway line, said motor bus route being as follows: Beginning at the safety 
zone on the West side of the Courthouse Square, and proceeding North along 
Liberty Street to Fifth Street; thence East along Fifth Street to Hospital 
Street; thence South on Hospital Street to Third Street; thence West on 
Third Street to Wheeler Street; thence South on Wheeler Street to Union 
Station; thence returning the same route to Main Street; thence South on 
Main Street to Third Street; thence West on Third Street to Liberty Street; 
and thence North on Liberty Street to the place of Beginning. A copy of said 
resolutions are attached to and made a part of the petition of the Southern 
Public Utilities Company in this proceeding, being marked respectively Exhibits 
"A" and "B." 

4. The abandonment of said street car line and the substitution in place 
thereof of the motor bus route hereinbefore described, will greatly improve 
the transportation service between the Courthouse Square and that part of 
the City of Winston-Salem known as East Winston, will be in the interest 
of public convenience, and the operation of said motor bus route, after the 
abandonment of said street railway line, will be a public necessity. 

5. The only objection filed with the Commission is that the change pro- 
posed will necessitate the transfer of high school students at the Courthouse 
Square. City Alderman Bailey, testified that that will be necessary in the 
future, even if street railways should be continued because of changes in the 
arrangement of safety zones around the Square. 

It is, therefore, ordered, That petitioner, Southern Public Utilities Company, 
be, and it hereby is, authorized permanently to discontinue the operation of 
said street railway line hereinbefore described between the Courthouse Square 
and Hospital Street in the City of Winston-Salem, and in place of said street 
railway line petitioner is authorized and empowered to maintain and operate 
as a part of its transportation system in the City of Winston-Salem the motor 
bus route hereinbefore described. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 55 

It is further ordered, That petitioner be, and it hereby is, granted a certifi- 
cate of public convenience and necessity for the operation of said motor bus 
route.

IN THE MATTER OF THE RATES OF THE TIDE WATER POWER 

COMPANY 

Order 

The Commission, pursuant to its Orders of July 21, 1932, and September 6, 
1932, respectively, has held conferences with representatives of the Tide Water 
Power Company with a view to securing a reduction of the electric rates of 
the Company to the end that the people of the State of North Carolina would, 
in view of existing conditions, secure cheaper electric energy. At these con- 
ferences representatives of the Tide Water Power Company intimated to the 
Commission that, at a great sacrifice, the Company could make a reduction of 
$25,000.00 in its income, provided the rate schedule suggested by the Company 
be made effective by the Commission. 

The Commission has considered information compiled from all available 
sources and has reviewed the record in the matter of the reduction of the rates 
of the Tide Water Power Company on petition of the City of Wilmington, 
heard by this Commission and final Order therein entered, reducing rates on or 
about the first day of April, 1931, and the Commission is of the opinion that the 
offer of the Tide Water Power Company to reduce its income $25,000.00, in 
accordance with rate schedules submitted to this Commission, is a fair and 
reasonable reduction in view of the present financial condition of the Company 
and in view of the $93,000.00 loss of income to the Company resulting from the 
said Order of this Commission on the first day of April, 1931, at which time 
the rates were reduced approximately ten per cent, which said reduction, 
together with the $25,000.00 reduction in income to be made at this time, and 
which constitutes a six per cent reduction upon the rate- schedules affected, 
based upon representations made by officers of the Company, will make a 
total reduction in the last twenty-one months of approximately sixteen per 
cent upon rates affected, or a total out-of-pocket, annual loss to the Company 
of $118,000.00. 

The Commission finds that the Tide Water Power Company operates in a 
sparsely settled part of Eastern North Carolina, and that, in view of the 
impoverished condition of the people in the rural districts in which the Tide 
Water Power Company operates, there exists apparently no probability of an 
increase of business to the Company because of the reduction. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the offer of the Tide Water Power Company to reduce its in- 
come $25,000.00 by change in rates for electric energy, said changes to be 
made in accordance with the schedules submitted to the Commission, be, and 
it is hereby, accepted. It is 



56 



2ST. C. Corporation Commission 



Further ordered, That all electric rate schedules of the Tide Water Power 
Company now on file with this Commission are hereby cancelled as of January 
1, 1933, and the following electric rate schedules are hereby approved for 
substitution and application therefor, to be effective on bills for monthly con- 
sumption periods beginning on and after January 1, 1933:

IN RE: MOTOR VEHICLE PROPERTY CARRIER PUBLIC LIABILITY 
AND PROPERTY DAMAGE INSURANCE ENDORSEMENT 

Order 

The Commission having under consideration Section 6, Chapter 136, Public Laws 
of 1927, known as the insurance section of the bus law, it is 

Ordered, That, effective January 1, 1933, the following prescribed endorsement 
shall be made a part of all public liability and property damage insurance policies 
filed by motor vehicle property carriers holding franchise certificates issued under 
Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927, and amendments thereto, and shall be attached 
to all new policies filed by such carriers on or after January 1, 1933; on all such 
policies now on file and in force, filed on or before December 31, 1932, the endorse- 
ment shall be attached on or before February 1, 1933: 

No condition, provision, stipulation, or limitation contained in the policy to 
which this endorsement is attached or any endorsement thereon, nor the viola- 
tion of any of the same by the assured shall affect in any way the right of any 
person injured in his person (except employees of the assured while engaged 
in operating or caring for the automobiles insured hereunder) or property by 
reason of an act of negligence arising from the operation by the assured of any 
motor vehicle insured hereunder, nor relieve the company from liability for the 
payment to such person of any judgment to the extent and in the amount set 
forth in the policy, provided such judgment is in excess of $50.00. 

The insurance granted under this policy is hereby extended to cover any 
motor vehicle operated by the assured in the transportation of property for 
compensation upon the route or routes designated in the franchise certificate or 
other operating authority issued by the Corporation Commission of North 
Carolina, whether such motor vehicle be specifically named, numbered, or 
designated, in the policy or not and/or any motor vehicle specifically named, 
numbered, or otherwise designated or described sufficiently for identification, 
operated by the assured while actually engaged in the transportation of property 
for compensation, or any operation in connection therewith, upon any of the 
public highways of the State of North Carolina. 

The insolvency, or bankruptcy, of the assured shall not release the company 
from the payment of such damages hereunder as would have been payable but 
for such insolvency, or bankruptcy; and the prepayment of any judgment that 
may be recovered against the assured upon any claim covered by this policy 
is not a condition precedent to any right of action against the company upon 
this policy, but the company is bound to the extent of its liability under the 
policy to pay and satisfy such judgment; and an action may be maintained 
upon such judgment by the injured person, or his or her heirs or personal 
representatives, as the case may be, to enforce liability of the company as in 
this policy set forth. 

The policy to which this endorsement is attached shall not be cancelled 
until after ten days' notice, in writing, by the company, shall have first been 
given to the Corporation Commission of North Carolina at its office in Raleigh, 
N. C, the said ten days' notice to commence to run from the date of receipt of 
notice by the Commission. 

By order of the Commission.

IN RE: C. O. D. SHIPMENTS HANDLED BY MOTOR VEHICLE 
PROPERTY CARRIERS 

Order 
During the past seven years of the operation of the motor vehicle act under which 
franchises are granted, the property carriers have built up a considerable C. O. D. 



104 2S\ C. Corporation Commission 

business. The Commission has not heretofore required of these carriers any guar- 
antee to the shipper for the proper accounting for such collections. Had all such 
collections been remitted within a reasonable time, probably the question of secur- 
ing the shipper against loss would not have arisen; but, failure of some of the carriers 
to make proper remittances has resulted in the shippers losing considerable money. 
A great majority of the carriers, of course, have been careful to account for all 
such collections and to account for them within a reasonable time. These collec- 
tions being made by carriers as agents of shippers, failure to account for them is 
embezzlement; notwithstanding that fact, some carriers have deliberately taken 
advantage of the situation, made such collections as long as they could get away 
with it, and have then gone out of business, some of them disappearing over night 
and others ceasing operation under varying circumstances. 

The Commission is fully aware that the franchise motor vehicle carriers are now 
burdened with insurance because of the high rates that they have to pay for public 
liability and property damage insurance, which is required of them by statute, and 
it has been reluctant to require additional bonds or insurance which would increase 
this expense of operation; however, it is now thought that the requirement of a 
bond to secure the prompt and proper handling of C. O. D. shipments will not only 
increase the reliability of the carriers, thereby increasing the volume of their busi- 
ness, but will, also, have a tendency to raise the standard of operation to the point 
that the Commission can permit an endorsement to be attached to motor vehicle 
carriers' public liability and property damage insurance policies with a deductible 
clause, which will operate to reduce premiums for that class of insurance more than 
the requirement of surety bonds for C. O. D. shipments will increase the cost of 
operation. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That for the protection of the shipping public and to secure proper 
handling of C. O. D. shipments (beginning with the sale of motor vehicle tags for 
the year 1933, all property carriers operating under franchises shall be required to 
file with this Commission a bond in a surety company, licensed to do business in 
the State of North Carolina, in a sum not less than one thousand ($1,000) dollars, 
indemnifying any and every shipper by such carrier against loss caused by failure 
to collect or to properly and promptly account for collections made by such carrier 
for the handling of C. O. D. shipments. 

By order of the Commission. R. O. Self,

TO OPERATORS OF TRUCKS OPERATING UNDER THE JURISDICTION 
OF THE NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMISSION 

In as much as we have some matters which are necessary to take up with the 
truck operators of this State, it has been thought by the Commission that the best 
way to handle the matter would be in a general conference in the Commissioner's 
office at Raleigh at 11 a. m., Friday, May 12, 1933. Therefore, it is 

Ordered, That each operator of trucks operating under the jurisdiction of this 
Commission be present at 11 a. m., in the office of the Commission in Raleigh, 
May 12, 1933, or have a representative who can act for him in all matters. 

By order of the Commission.

Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 105 

TO ALL MOTOR VEHICLE CARRIERS: 

Referring to the Commission's order of December 10, 1932, requiring bond for 
C. O. D. collections, I am now advised to call your attention to the fact that be- 
cause of the financial depression, bank holidays, etc., the Commission found it 
necessary to defer the effective date of said order to July 1, 1933. Therefore a 
copy of the order of December 10, 1932, and a copy of the order amending same 
deferring the effective date from January 1, 1933, to July 1, 1933, and a form of 
the bond which the Commission will require, are hereby enclosed. 

You will please get in touch with your Insurance Agent giving him this informa- 
tion and have him file your bond effective July, 1933. 

Respectfully, 

R. O. Self, 

Clerk. 

IN RE: AMENDMENT TO THE COMMISSION'S ORDER OF DECEM- 
BER 10, 1932, WITH REFERENCE TO C. O. D. COLLECTING BONDS 

Order 
It being necessary to postpone the effective date of the order of the Commission 
of December 10, 1932, it is 

Ordered, That the same be amended by striking out the words "beginning 
with the sale of motor vehicle tags for the year 1933" in the last paragraph and 
inserting in lieu thereof the words "effective July 1, 1933," and it is further 

Ordered, That all clauses of orders in conflict with this order are hereby rescinded.

IN RE: APPLICATION OF L. M. BARNARD, GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C, 
FOR FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE AUTHORIZING MOTOR VEHICLE 
PASSENGER SERVICE BETWEEN RALEIGH, N. C, AND OXFORD, 
N. C, HIGHWAYS No. 21 AND 75 

Order 

The above petition was heard by the Commission on October 27, 1933. The 
petitioner asked for a franchise from Raleigh over Highway No. 21 to Creedmoor, 
thence with restrictions over Highway No. 75 into Oxford; and, just prior to the 
hearing, amended his application to include from Oxford over Highway No. 48 into 
Roxboro, North Carolina. 

Evidence was offered at the hearing for the purpose of showing public convenience 
and necessity for passenger service between Creedmoor and Raleigh, but the most 
conclusive evidence of whether public convenience and necessity demands this 
service has been presented by the actual experience of more than one operator between 
these points even prior to the depression who were able to operate for only a trial 
period. The Commission is, therefore, of the opinion that under existing conditions 
the line asked for could not be self-sustaining as an independent operation; there- 
fore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition be, and it is hereby, denied. 

By order of the Commission. R. 0. Self,

IN RE: APPLICATION LEE M. BARNARD FOR LICENSE CERTIFICATE 
TO OPERATE AS MOTOR VEHICLE CARRIER OVER NORTH CAROLINA 
HIGHWAY No. 59 FROM RALEIGH TO LOUISBURG 

Order 

This is the petition of Mr. Lee M. Barnard for bus franchise to operate from 
Raleigh to Louisburg over North Carolina Highway No. 59. 

Conference was held on this matter between the Commission and petitioner, and 
since no one was operating over the highway in question, it was decided that cer- 
tificate would be granted, if, and when, the condition of the highway will permit. 

On August the twenty-seventh, the petitioner advised the Commissioner that 
the bridge located five miles south of Rolesville had been limited to four tons weight, 
and that the smallest bus the petitioner had weighed four and one-half tons net, 
but under the circumstances the Commission has found it impracticable to carry 
these matters on its docket indefinitely; therefore, the petition is hereby granted, 
and it is 

Ordered, That if the petitioner, Lee M. Barnard, can begin operation before 
January 1, 1935, certificate will be issued to him for the operation, otherwise, if said

petitioner fails to begin operation before that date, this authority shall expire and new 

application shall be made for the issue of a certificate.

This is the petition of Mr. Lee M. Barnard for franchise certificate to operate 
from Oxford to Roxboro over Highway No. 48. 

Conference was held on this matter in the office of the Commission, and the 
petition is granted, subject to operating prior to January 1st, 1935; 

Therefore, it is Ordered, That petition be granted with limitations above stated. 
If operation should not begin before January 1st, 1935, the petitioner shall be

IN RE: APPLICATION LEE M. BARNARD FOR LICENSE CERTIFICATE 
TO OPERATE AS A MOTOR VEHICLE CARRIER FROM DURHAM TO 
SPRING HOPE VIA BUNN AND WAKE FORECT OVER HIGHWAYS 
No. 91 AND 581, AND FROM SPRING HOPE TO ROCKY MOUNT OVER 
HIGHWAY No. 90 

Order 

This is the petition of Lee M. Barnard making application for a passenger bus 
franchise between Durham and Spring Hope via Wake Forest over the State High- 
ways No. 91 and No. 581. 

This petition was granted after conference with the Commission, and thereupon 
the petitioner advised the Commission that the road could not be operated at that 
time because it was partly under construction or repair, and the Commission agreed 
to hold the matter pending completion of the construction or repairs, and, in the 
meantime, the petitioner made application for additional franchise from Wake 
Forest to Rocky Mount covering that part of his first application from Wake Forest 
to Spring Hope and adding an additional request from Spring Hope to Rocky 
Mount. These dockets 109 and 130 which have been consolidated for the purposes 
of this office. 

This case was heard August 24th, 1934, at which hearing the Carolina Coach 
Company was represented and objected to the operation between Spring Hope 
and Rocky Mount. Several witnesses were presented, by the petitioner, from Wake 
Forest, all of whom testified to the effect that they believed that a bus line from 
Wake Forest to Rocky Mount would be advantageous to the college and the com- 
munity in general through which the line would operate. While there is some 
doubt as to whether or not the traffic over this line would be sufficient to warrant 
this operation, at the same time, no evidence was offered to show that, and much 
evidence was offered in favor of the operation, therefore, the Commissioner is 



108 IN". C. Corporation Commission 

inclined to believe that the weight of evidence is sufficient to permit the trial of 
said operation with certain restrictions and limitations; 

Therefore, it is ordered, That the petition be granted for the operation of said 
bus line from Durham via Wake Forest to Spring Hope over Highways No. 91 and 
No. 581 and from Spring Hope to Rocky Mount over Highway No. 90, with closed 
doors — no picking up from Spring Hope and intervening points between Spring 
Hope and Rocky Mount and from Rocky Mount and intervening points to Spring 
Hope, provided that certificate shall issue upon the beginning of operation, pro- 
vided that the petitioner shall begin operation on or before January 1st, 1935, 
otherwise, this Order shall be null and void, and the application shall be renewed 
before any operation is authorized or certificate issued after January 1st, 1935.

IN RE: PETITION OF BLACK'S MOTOR EXPRESS FOR FRANCHISE 
CERTIFICATE TO OPERATE A MOTOR VEHICLE FREIGHT SERVICE 
BETWEEN CLINTON AND FAYETTEVILLE OVER HIGHWAY N o. 24 

Order 

Hearing of the above matter was set for and held on September 20, 1932. The 
petitioner appeared in person and Mr. H. Hunt, of H. Hunt & Company, appeared 
in his own behalf. It was ascertained that H. Hunt & Company had made appli- 
cation to operate over this same line at a date previous to the application made 
by Black's Motor Express. The Commission heard both petitioners and it was 
decided that H. Hunt & Company should receive the franchise between Elizabeth- 
town and Clinton and between Clinton and Fayetteville but would not be permitted 
to haul freight out of Wilmington for Clinton for the reason that Black's Motor 
Express now holds franchise for operation of a freight line between Wilmington 
and Clinton over Highway No. 60; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition of Black's Motor Express be denied and that Franchise 
Certificate No. 263, now held by H. Hunt & Company, be amended to include 
Elizabethtown to Fayetteville via Clinton, Highways No. 23 and 24, with the 
above provisions.

Order 
This case coming on to be heard on January 25, 1933, after due notice had been 
given in accordance with law to the public and parties interested generally, by 
publication and otherwise, the petitioner was represented by W. B. Jones, attorney

Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 109 

Facts presented to the Commission at the hearing by the attorneys for both 
petitioner and respondent, together with State Highway Map, showing the location 
of the roads referred to, were ample, in the opinion of the Commission, for the full 
and final determination of the matter; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That Franchise Certificate No. 68, in the name of Carolina Scenic 
Coach Line, be amended to extend the line of petitioner from Hendersonville to 
Asheville over Highway No. 191 without privilege of picking up passengers in 
Hendersonville for Asheville except for that part of Asheville west of the French 
Broad River, known as West Asheville, or in Asheville on the east side of the French 
Broad River for Hendersonville.

Order 
Public liability and property damage insurance, filed by C. E. Featherston, 
Receiver for Dixie Motor Transit Line, Inc., to cover operation under Franchise 
Certificate No. 332, in accordance with requirements of Section 6, Chapter 136, 
Public Laws of 1927, was cancelled, effective July 23, 1933. The operator under 
this franchise was duly notified of the cancellation of insurance coverage and the 
necessity for filing acceptable public liability and property damage insurance to 
cover the equipment operated in order to continue the operation in accordance 
with the requirements of the law under which the franchise was issued and no 
insurance having been filed to replace that cancelled, it is 

Ordered, That said Franchise Certificate No. 332 be, and it is hereby, cancelled, 
effective July 23, 1933. It is 

Further ordered, That copy of this order be served upon the Commissioner of 
Revenue as authority for securing final settlement of any tax that may be due 
to be paid under the operation conducted under Franchise Certificate No. 332 to 
and including July 23, 1933.

IN RE: APPLICATION OF DIXIE BUS LINES, INC., RICHMOND, VIR- 
GINIA, FOR FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE AUTHORIZING MOTOR 
VEHICLE PASSENGER SERVICE BETWEEN RALEIGH, NORTH CARO- 
LINA, AND OXFORD, NORTH CAROLINA, HIGHWAYS Nos. 21 AND 75 

Order 

The above petition was heard by the Commission on October 27, 1933. The 
petitioner holds a franchise from the North Carolina- Virginia State Line over 
Highway No. 75 to Oxford, North Carolina, and the petition under consideration 
at this time is to extend the operation over the highways by way of Creedmoor 
to Raleigh. 

While the Commission is confident this service could not profitably be extended 
to the public as an independent operation, there is a possibility of its operation 



110 "N. C. Corporation Commission 

in connection with the petitioner's existing lines without serious loss. The petitioner 
now operates from Richmond, Virginia, to Oxford, North Carolina, and to extend 
the franchise in accordance with the petition would result in a duplication of service 
Richmond to Raleigh by different routes. Our experience with such duplications 
has been such as to make us hesitate to grant franchises which will result in such 
duplications, as competing operators are usually in disagreement over station 
practices and fares. 

There may be some slight travel between Raleigh and points on the line of peti- 
tioner that are not common to East Coast Stages, also operating between Richmond 
and Raleigh; but the travel between such points as are not common to both we 
believe is small, for the reason that the towns involved are very little more than 
villages and until the present roads were constructed, access to Raleigh was with 
great difficulty; therefore, no commerce, or trade, has been built up between these 
places and the destination proposed by the petitioner. We believe if there is a public 
convenience to be served, it would be in making connection at Raleigh with other 
carriers for points beyond. In connection of this connection service, the Com- 
mission would be disposed to grant the franchise without limitation if it were not 
for the competitive feature involved; but, because of the Commission's unpleasant 
experience with such operations, in justice to the petitioner as well as to the other 
carrier which would be affected, and having in mind cooperation with the President's 
recovery program, looking to fair competition, the Commission can not grant the 
franchise requested without safeguarding the operation of the petitioner and its 
competitor. 

Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, is a reorganization of a former operation which 
had financial difficulties, probably brought on by having to meet unfair competi- 
tion. East Coast Stages, Incorporated, operating from Raleigh and Oxford to 
Richmond, is the successor to two former operations between Richmond and Raleigh, 
the financial embarrassment of its predecessors probably to a great degree having 
been brought about by unfair competition also. The Commission believes that 
by the granting of this petition and the consequent creation of competitive opera- 
tions between Raleigh, Creedmoor, Oxford, Petersburg and Richmond, there would 
probably be a repetition of the experience of the predecessor companies of the 
present operations and that the probable result would be the destruction of the 
competitors and that a uniform tariff for both carriers would be the only possible 
solution of that difficulty and would probably result in the successful operation of 
both carriers. Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, has not had the facilities for issuing 
tariffs that the East Coast Stages, Incorporated, has, whose tariffs are worked out 
over all connecting fines and have been in use for a sufficient period to become 
widely established; therefore, it is the opinion of the Commission that the adoption 
of these rates, charges and tariffs by Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, will solve the 
question of uniformity of rates, such adopted rates to be subject to change only 
upon approval by this Commission. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That petition of Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, be, and it is hereby, 
granted, subject to acceptance by Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, and filing in 
verified form the following conditions : 

That from or after the granting of this franchise certificate, Dixie Bus Lines, 
Incorporated, will charge the same rate of fare from all points in North Carolina 
to all points outside of North Carolina served by it and its connecting carriers 
as the published rates of East Coast Stages, Incorporated; and Dixie Bus 
Lines, Incorporated, will charge from all points outside of North Carolina to 
all points in North Carolina the same rate as that charged by East Coast 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 111 

Stages, Incorporated, and its connecting carriers; and Dixie Bus Lines, Incor- 
porated, will not concur in any rate from any point which is a reduction from 
the above, nor will they honor a ticket sold by other companies at less than 
the above rate. 

It is 

Further ordered, That when the above conditions are met in a manner satis- 
factory to the Commission, Franchise Certificate No. 394 shall be amended so as 
to comply with the foregoing order. It is 

Further ordered, That East Coast Stages, Incorporated, furnish to Dixie Bus 
Lines, Incorporated, a sufficient number of copies of its present tariffs to supply its 
needs at the common points between Richmond and Raleigh, inclusive, and that 
Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, shall file with the above conditions a copy of such 
tariffs with this Commission, to be approved as the tariff to be applied by Dixie 
Bus Lines, Incorporated; and, both East Coast Stages, Incorporated, and Dixie 
Bus Lines, Incorporated, are hereby ordered each to furnish the other thereafter 
a copy of any proposed change in this tariff submitted to the Commission for its 
approval. When, or if, such changes are approved by the Commission, they shall 
in each instance be approved for application by both Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, 
and East Coast Stages, Incorporated.

BUS LINES, INCORPORATED, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, AND ANY 
AUTHORITY WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN GRANTED TO D. M. GRIFFIN 
UNDER ANY OPERATING NAME TO OPERATE BUSES WITHIN THE

Order 

Whereas a Certificate No. 394 was granted to Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, 
807 East Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia, to operate passenger motor vehicles 
from Oxford, North Carolina, to the Virginia-North Carolina State Line, High- 
way No. 75, and 

Whereas, said certificate was amended on December 1, 1933, to include opera- 
tion from Raleigh, North Carolina, to Oxford, North Carolina, via Creedmoor, 
Highways No. 21 and 75, under the conditions prescribed in the Commission's 
Order of November 24, 1933, and 

Whereas, the said Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, complied with the Commis- 
sion's Order, Rules and Regulations governing the operation of buses in this State 
at that time and since by filing public liability and property damage insurance, and 

Whereas, on July 14, 1934, the American Fidelity and Casualty Company, Rich- 
mond, Virginia, gave the Commission notice that the said insurance policy filed 
by this operator, No. PT-14111, had been cancelled by the said American Fidelity 
and Casualty Company, effective ten days from the date of receipt of said notice, 
which was July 16, 1934, making the effective date of cancellation July 26, 1934, 
and, whereas, the Commission under date of July 16, 1934, in a letter notified the 
said Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, at 304 North Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia, 
with reference to said cancellation and no communication has been received from 
the said Dixie Bus Lines, Incorporated, with reference thereto, now, therefore, it 
becomes the duty of this Commission under Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927,

IN RE: FRANCHISE COVERING MOTOR VEHICLE PASSENGER OPERA- 
TION BETWEEN DURHAM AND HENDERSON VIA OXFORD, HIGH- 
WAYS No. 75 AND 48 

Order 
The question involved in this order arose at the hearing on January 25, 1933, 
of the petition of the East Coast Stages, Incorporated, for franchise covering motor 
vehicle passenger operation between Henderson and Durham via Oxford, Highway 
Nos. 75 and 48. 

This line has had an operator upon it continuously until the abandonment of 
the part of the route between Oxford and Henderson, and that part between Oxford 
and Durham has been operated by Dixie Motor Transit Line and its Receivers 
since December 28, 1931. The question arose with reference to an operator on that 
part of the line between Durham and Oxford, the operation between Oxford and 
Henderson having been abandoned, and the petitioner endeavored to present evi- 
dence to the effect that whatever rights Dixie Motor Transit Line, which has oper- 
ated between Oxford and Durham, had were cancelled by virtue of the act of the 
Commissioner of Revenue in an endeavor to comply with the provisions of Section 
209 of the Revenue Act in the collection of tax due to be paid by that operation. 

The Commission is not exactly satisfied by the evidence presented that the action 
of the Commissioner of Revenue cancelled the rights enjoyed by this operator; but, 
sufficient evidence was presented to prove that the law with reference to tax pay- 
ments had not been complied with and, therefore, the privileges granted to Dixie 
Motor Transit Line in the Commission's Order of December 28, 1931, have become 
void by reason of failure to pay the tax as provided in Section 10 of Chapter 136, 
Public Laws of 1927, and is further subject to cancellation for noncompliance with 
the Commission's Order, above referred to, Dixie Motor Transit Line having failed 
to comply with the provisions of said order stated in the last paragraph, to wit: 

"The franchise certificate of Golden Belt Bus Line and all papers connected 
with the sale are retained in the office of the Corporation Commission until the 
first mortgage, held by Bart M. Gatling and J. Crawford Biggs has been satis- 
fied, and the Dixie Motor Transit Company is hereby ordered to report to this 
Commission when the said mortgage has been satisfied in order that the fran- 
chise certificate of the Golden Belt Bus Line may be cancelled and reissued to 
the Dixie Motor Transit Company. " 

Therefore, it is 

Ordered, That such authority as was granted in the Commission's Order of 
December 28, 1931, to G. C. McManus to transfer the franchise to Dixie Motor 
Transit Line is hereby revoked; and, it is 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 113 

Further ordered, That since G. C. McManus purchased such rights as he 
enjoyed by virtue of the Order of December 28, 1931, and the Dixie Motor Transit 
Line became operator at that time under an agreement to purchase, and that part 
of the line between Henderson and Oxford having been vacated and the franchise 
not having been protected by the said G. C. McManus, such rights as he obtained 
by the purchase at the foreclosure sale, held on December 28, 1931, are hereby 
declared to have been surrendered. It is 

Further ordered, That the said line between Henderson and Durham via 
Oxford, Highways 48 and 75, is hereby declared to be vacant as respects the exist- 
ence of a franchise certificate thereon to operate motor vehicle passenger service 
as contemplated under Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927, and amendments thereto 
and orders made by the Commission thereunder, effective at ten o'clock p. m., 
Tuesday, May 9, 1933. It is 

Further ordered, That the Commission will on Tuesday, May 9, 1933, at 11:00 
o'clock, a. m., in its office in Raleigh (the date of April 27, 1933, heretofore agreed 
upon verbally has been cancelled), hold a hearing, at which time applicants for 
franchise over the lines in question will be heard.

IN RE: FRANCHISE COVERING MOTOR VEHICLE PASSENGER OPERA- 
TION BETWEEN DURHAM AND HENDERSON VIA OXFORD, HIGH- 
WAYS No. 75 AND 48 

Order 
This has reference to the Commission's Order of April 24, 1933, and specific 
reference to the hearing on May 9, 1933, at which time the effective date of said 
order was changed from May 9, 1933, to a later date, being finally deferred to 
June 15, 1933, at 10:00 o'clock p. m. 

The Commission has given the questions involved in this case very careful and 
earnest consideration and has had a number of applicants from which to choose. 
Because of the various claims presented to the Commission with reference to the 
former operations, it has been extremely difficult to determine; but the Commis- 
sion is charged with providing the best public service on these lines that it is possible 
to give and has, therefore, come to the conclusion that East Coast Stages, Incor- 
porated, is in a better position to serve this fine than any of the other applicants; 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition of East Coast Stages, Incorporated, for bus franchise 
between Durham and Henderson, North Carolina, via Oxford over Highways 
No. 75 and 48, be, and it is hereby, granted. It is 

Further ordered, That the Commission's Order of April 24, 1933, cancelling 
any operating rights held by former operators on this line, be extended to mid- 
night, Saturday, June 17, 1933, at which time D. M. Griffin, formerly operating 
as Dixie Motor Transit Line, shall cease operating over the line referred to herein.

Hearing was held by the Commission on the above application at 2:30 p. m., 
Wednesday, June 28, 1933, at which Mr. H. Pierce Brawner, Vice President of

and Mr. J. H. Quattlebaum, its traffic manager. 

The Commission has given careful consideration to this application and has 
come to the conclusion that the service offered to be given by the applicant is in 
the public interest; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the application be, and it is hereby, granted and that Franchise 
Certificate No. 375, in the name of East Coast Stages, Incorporated, be amended

IN RE: CONNECTION BETWEEN EAST COAST STAGES, INCORPO-

Order 
It has come to the attention of the Commission that the Schedules of East Coast 
Stages, Incorporated, have been changed to reach Oxford at 11:30 a. m., instead 
of 11.50 a. m., as formerly. This breaks the connection with the bus line that 
passes through Bullock, Stovall and Lewis for points south and thereby does not 
permit passengers from the above points to have connection south; therefore, the 
motor carriers named above are hereby directed to show cause on September 12, 
1933, at 11:00 o'clock a. m., in the office of the Commission, in Raleigh, why these 
schedules should not be made to connect for the convenience of passengers at Ox- 
ford, North Carolina. It is 

Further ordered, That copy of this order be served upon Mr. H. P. Brawner,

Order 

It having come to the attention of the Commission indirectly that service on the 
highway called for in Franchise Certificate No. 338, issued to Eastern Motor Trans- 
port, Clarence Wyatt, owner, Richmond, Virginia, on June 13, 1931, had been 
abandoned, the Commission made inquiry by writing to Eastern Motor Transport 
at the home office of the company in Richmond, Virginia, on October 17, 1933; 
and, in reply was advised by an agent of the company that service had been aban- 
doned as of October 7, 1933. Therefore, under Paragraph 2 of Section 10, Chapter 
136, Public Laws of 1927, the said Franchise Certificate No. 338 has become null 
and void. It is, therefore 

Ordered, That Franchise Certificate No. 338, dated June 13, 1931, issued to

Order 

Whereas, the above franchise, standing in the name of Golden Belt Bus Line* 
Franchise Certificate No. 203, was sold at public auction under deed of trust by the 
trustees, Messrs. W. E. Smith and Bart M. Gatling, on December 28, 1931, being 
purchased by Mr. G. C. McManus, holder of the second mortgage thereon, sub- 
ject to the lien of a first mortgage to Bart M. Gatling and J. Crawford Biggs; and 

Whereas, upon application of Mr. G. C. McManus for transfer of said franchise, 
he was advised by the Commission that the transfer would be made upon the fifing 
of evidence of the satisfaction of the holders of the prior lien, Messrs. Gatling and 
Biggs; and 

Whereas, Mr. McManus appeared before the Commission on the date of sale, 
December 28, 1931, and secured the approval of the Commission for the transfer 
and delivery of said franchise to Mr. D. M. Griffin, owner of Dixie Motor Transit 
Line, the Commission stating in its order of that date: 

"The franchise certificate of Golden Belt Bus Line and all papers connected 
with the sale are retained in the office of the Corporation Commission until 
the first mortgage, held by Bart M. Gatling and J. Crawford Biggs has been 
satisfied, and the Dixie Motor Transit Company is hereby ordered to report 
to this Commission when the said mortgage has been satisfied in order that the 
franchise certificate of the Golden Belt Bus Line may be cancelled and reissued to 
the Dixie Motor Transit Company," and 

Whereas, compliance with the provisions of the Commission's order of Decem- 
ber 28, 1931, as quoted above, has not been made, 

Now, therefore, it becomes necessary for the Commission to take action on 
this matter in the public interest and notice is hereby served upon Messrs. Bart M.

GOLDSBORO UNION BUS STATION EXPENSE 
Order 

This matter coming on to be heard on Monday, October 17, 1932, after due 
notice had been given to Mr. Irby Holmes, Agent at the Union Bus Station in 
Goldsboro; Mr. J. M. West, President of the Seashore Transportation Company; 
Messrs. A. D. and N. M. Southerland, of Southerland Brothers; and Mr. H. P. 
Brawner, Vice President of East Coast Stages. 

All parties notified were present and it developed during the course of the hear- 
ing that the cause for complaint was occasioned by Southerland Brothers failing to 
pay their prorata part of the expense of said station on a schedule departure 
basis. It was contended by Southerland Brothers that they were paying what 
they had agreed to pay at the present location of the station, that is $7.50 per 
departure, and it was contended by the other operators that such an arrangement 
was in effect up to January 1, 1932; that the station at that time was in charge of 
the Seashore Transportation Company's management in cooperation with the East 
Coast Stages' management; and that notice was given all parties on January first 
that the expense of the station would be borne on a departure basis and that all 
operators would share alike. Southerland Brothers continued to pay $7.50 per 
departure until about May tenth, when a meeting was had in reference to the 
matter, which adjourned without reaching an amicable agreement. At that time, 
it appeared that Southerland Brothers were behind in their payments $62.25; at 
the time of this hearing, this has increased to $124.90. During the course of this 
hearing the operators agreed to continue the operation of the station on a revenue 
basis rather than on a schedule departure basis; therefore, in order to get the matter 
adjusted to be in position to continue on the new basis, it is 

Ordered, That Southerland Brothers pay to the Agent, Mr. Irby Holmes, the 
sum of $62.25 in satisfaction of accumulated arrears to November 1, 1932; that 
Seashore Transportation Company and East Coast Stages pay to Mr. Holmes the 
sum of $62.25, the amount to be paid by each to be prorated upon any basis that 
they may determine. It is 

Further ordered, That this order shall be effective from and after its date.

The Commission issued an order on October 17, 1932, prorating accumulated 
arrears in the station expense at the Goldsboro Union Bus Station to November 1, 
1932. It has now come to the attention of the Commission that this order made 
no provision for the collection of the amounts prorated in the said order; that it 
provided no machinery for the collection of monthly assessments, agreement having 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 117 

been reached during the progress of the hearing on October 17, 1932, that effective 
November 1, 1932, the station expense shall be prorated among the carriers enter- 
ing the station upon the number of tickets sold for each carrier, the assessment 
of which can not be made until the first of the month following that for which 
assessment is made. It is, now, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Order of the Commission of October 17, 1932, be amended, 
effective this day, authorizing the Union Bus Station Agent at Goldsboro to with- 
hold from the proceeds from the sale of tickets at said station sufficient money to 
make the financial adjustments provided in the said order; that he is, also, authorized 
to withhold funds from the proceeds from ticket sales at the Goldsboro Union Bus 
Station sufficient to pay the various amounts assessed against each operator monthly, 
provided they are not paid by the various operators within ten days from date of 
rendering of statement, or bill, of assessment.

Order 

This case was heard along with two other petitions, namely, that of G. & W. 
Truck Line and R. C. Buchan. H. Hunt and Company having headquarters in 
Wilmington and being an old established operator, it was thought that he could 
better serve the territory involved than either of the other petitioners. Other 
franchise carriers north and west of Goldsboro appeared at the hearing and com- 
plained that they had no satisfactory service south of Goldsboro and that unless 
they could get proper connections that they wished to request Thurston Motor 
Line to extend that operation south of Goldsboro but stated that if the operator 
receiving the franchise would give the proper connection at Goldsboro that they 
preferred to make that connection there rather than run into Wilmington; there 
fore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition of H. Hunt and Company be granted and that the 
certificate which he now holds be amended to include Route No. 40 from Wilming- 
ton to Goldsboro but that operators holding franchises over routes north and west 
of Goldsboro be permitted to run into Wilmington when they have shipments in 
one load which will total seventy-five hundred pounds. It is 

Further ordered, That H. Hunt stnd Company operate this line in such a 
manner as will afford the proper connections at Goldsboro for goods being shipped 
North and West and also proper connections out of Goldsboro for points South.

IN RE: FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE No. 349, ISSUED UNDER AUTHOR- 
ITY OF CHAPTER 136, PUBLIC LAWS OF 1927, AND AMENDMENTS, 
TO JOHNSON TRANSIT COMPANY, DUNN, N. C. 

Order 
On October 20, 1933, the Commission directed H. P. Johnson, President of John- 
son Transit Company, Dunn, North Carolina, holder of Franchise Certificate 



118 29". C. Corporation Commission 

No. 349, to show cause on or before November 1, 1933, why Franchise Certificate 
No. 349 should not be cancelled. This notice to show cause was based upon failure 
of Johnson Transit Company to answer satisfactorily complaints with reference 
to the handling of C. O. D. shipments, for failure to explain under what authority 
of law it was handling shipments between Norfolk, Virginia, and Winston-Salem, 
North Carolina; and for failure to keep on file necessary public liability and property 
damage insurance to operate under the provisions of the North Carolina Bus Law. 

No appearance having been made by Johnson Transit Company and no com- 
munication having been received from Johnson Transit Company in response to 
the Commission's notice to show cause and all insurance coverage for this opera- 
tion having been cancelled, effective October 2, 1933, and none having been filed 
to replace that cancelled, it is 

Ordered, That, effective November 2, 1933, Franchise Certificate No. 349, 
authorizing the operation of a motor vehicle freight service between Dunn, N. C, 
and Wilmington, N. C, via Clinton, Highways 60 and 40, without privilege of

IN RE: PETITION OF THE NORFOLK, BALTIMORE AND CAROLINA 
TRUCK LINE, NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, FOR FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE 
TO COVER THE OPERATION FORMERLY ENGAGED IN BY CAROLINA 
LINES, INCORPORATED, AND LAFAYETTE TRANSIT COMPANY 

Order 

The petitioner in the above matter presented to the Commission an order from 
W. B. Duncan, United States Referee in Bankruptcy, No. 2299, disposing of certain 
equipment and any right, title and interest of the trustee in the franchises in East- 
ern North Carolina, referred to above. Upon examination of the records of the 
Commission they show that the franchises in question were forfeited by Carolina 
Lines, Incorporated; that the Commission agreed to the transfer of the said franchises 
to LaFayette Transit Company under certain conditions to be met by the LaFayette 
Transit Company, but that those conditions were never complied with. 

Now, the above-named petitioner comes into court and presents, in addition to 
the order of the Referee in Bankruptcy, a statement from the Commissioner of 
Revenue that the tax involved by the bankruptcy has been satisfactorily arranged 
by the petitioner now before this Commission; therefore, this Commission, upon 
the qualification of the petitioner, has agreed to permit the petitioner to do an 
interstate business in connection with its boat line; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petitioner be granted interstate authority and be permitted 
to comply with the law and purchase truck tags therefor. 

By order of the Commission.

IN RE: PETITION OF N. B. & C. MOTOR LINES, WASHINGTON, NORTH 
CAROLINA, FOR FRANCHISE AUTHORIZING INTRASTATE OPERA- 
TION UNDER CHAPTER 136, PUBLIC LAWS OF 1927, AND AMEND- 
MENTS, BETWEEN CERTAIN POINTS IN THE STATE OF NORTH 
CAROLINA 

Order 
This petition of N. B. & C. Motor Lines, Washington, North Carolina, making 
application for a franchise to operate motor vehicle freight and express service 
intrastate between Washington and Raleigh via Zebulon, Highways Nos. 91 and 
90; Williamston and Zebulon, Highway No. 90; New Bern and Raleigh via High- 
way No. 10 to Kinston, No. 12 to Snow Hill, No. 102 to Goldsboro, No. 10 and 
22 to Selma, No. 22 to Smithfield and No. 10 to Raleigh. 

The petition was heard by the Commission on June 27, 1933, at which time 
certain other motor vehicle carriers, principally Stallings Transfer Service and 
Capital Coast Express, Incorporated, appeared in opposition to the granting of 
this petition and offered evidence to the effect that the granting of this petition 
would materially depreciate the value of the operations which they had built up 
and was not required to meet public convenience and necessity. 

It, also, appears on record that the petitioner has been operating as an interstate 
carrier between Washington, North Carolina, and other points and connecting with 
the Norfolk, Baltimore and Carolina Boat Lines. 

The Commission, after considering all the facts presented, is of the opinion that 
public convenience and necessity will not be served by the granting of this peti- 
tion; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition be dismissed and that the petitioner be permitted 
to continue operating as an interstate carrier, subject to the law and rules and 
regulations made thereunder. 
By order of the Commission.

PIERCE & FORMY DUVAL, INCORPORATED, v. MILLER MOTOR 

EXPRESS 

Order 

The hearing held in this matter on September 8, 1933, was upon petition of Pierce 
& Formy DuVal, Incorporated, versus Miller Motor Express for infringement on its 
franchise, authorizing motor vehicle freight service as provided by Chapter 136, 
Public Laws of 1927, between Hamlet and Wilmington, Highway No. 20. 

The Commission has held several hearings involving complaints between these 
two companies, which complaints have each time embraced practically the same 
violations. The Commission's orders of March 18, 1932, and November 2, 1932, 
went into this subject fully. Heretofore, Miller Motor Express has held franchise 
between Charlotte and Hamlet on Highway No. 20; Laurinburg and Fayetteville, 
Highway No. 24; Fayetteville and Lumberton, Highway No. 22; and Lumberton 
to Wilmington via Bolton, Highways No. 211 and 20, without privilege of local 
operation on Highway No. 20 between Bolton and Wilmington and with the restric- 
tion that no freight shipments shall be picked up in Laurinburg, Lumberton or 
Fayetteville destined to any point on Route 20 east of Hamlet or in Wilmington 
or Fayetteville destined to any point on Route 20 east of Hamlet, except such 
shipments as may be received as interchange traffic from another motor transit

or steamship line, the points restricted in each case being the part of the highway 
covered by the franchise of Pierce & Formy DuVal, Incorporated. Pierce & Formy 
DuVal, Incorporated, has had a franchise on Route 20 between Hamlet and Wil- 
mington, with destination Charlotte and with restrictions between Hamlet and 
Charlotte. 

The complaint in this case was in reference to violations by Miller Motor Express 
of its restricted area between Hamlet and Wilmington. There has been much 
friction between these two operations; therefore, the Commission is of the opinion 
that both operators should be given a free hand to solicit and deliver freight on 
Highway No. 20 between Charlotte and Wilmington, each operator to conform 
rigidly to the general uniform tariff approved by the Commission for all motor 
vehicle operators in the State; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Commission finds public convenience and necessity will be 
served by giving to both operators a franchise on Route 20 between Wilmington 
and Charlotte. It is 

Further ordered, That the franchise certificate of each carrier be amended 
to conform to the foregoing order and that this order have the effect of cancelling 
the Commission's orders of March 18 and November 2, 1932, as of its effective date. 
It is 

Further ordered, That Pierce & Formy DuVal, Incorporated, and Miller 
Motor Express use the uniform tariff approved by the Commission for intrastate 
operation between all points affected on their franchise lines, and any willful viola- 
tion of the said tariff by either operator will be sufficient cause for cancellation of 
franchise in accordance with provisions of the statute. 

By order of the Commission.

IN RE: PIERCE & FORMY DUVAL, INCORPORATED, FOR FRANCHISE 
CERTIFICATE TO OPERATE A MOTOR FREIGHT SERVICE ON HIGH- 
WAY NO. 20 BETWEEN HAMLET AND CHARLOTTE 

Order 

This case coming on to be heard on September 20, 1932, and petitioner and 
representatives of Miller Motor Express being present, it was ascertained that 
Pierce & Formy DuVal, Incorporated, desired to distribute freight at points between 
Hamlet and Charlotte because of the fact that Miller Motor Express distributes 
freight at certain points on Highway No. 20 east of Hamlet. With reference to this 
fact, it must be remembered that the Miller Motor Express has a franchise on High- 
way No. 20 between Hamlet and Charlotte and Pierce & Formy DuVal, Incorpo- 
rated, has a franchise on Highway No. 20 east of Hamlet. The Miller Motor Express 
also has a franchise to run from Laurinburg to Fayetteville but is to operate with 
closed doors between Hamlet and Laurinburg on Highway No. 20. It also has a 
franchise to run from Fayetteville to Lumberton, but, because of Lumberton be- 
ing on Highway No. 20 and originally on the franchise of Pierce & Formy DuVal, 
Incorporated, it has no authority to pick up in Lumberton for other points on 
Highway No. 20 east of Hamlet. At Lumberton, Miller Motor Express has a 
franchise over No. 211 east to its intersection with Highway No. 20 at Bolton and 
thence into Wilmington from Bolton with closed doors. 

The evidence presented by the petitioner complained of Miller Motor Express 
drivers picking up and delivering freight shipments on Highway No. 20 at various 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 121 

points where its franchise touches that route east of Hamlet. Representatives of 
Miller Motor Express stated that there had been a few isolated shipments so deliv- 
ered and stated that it did not desire that privilege and asked for three days in which 
to give its drivers instructions not to repeat the practice. In due course copy of cir- 
cular issued by Miller Motor Express to its drivers was received by the Commission 
and the Commission prefers to dispose of this matter by denying the petition of 
Pierce & Formy DuVal, Incorporated, for franchise certificate west of Hamlet on 
Highway No. 20 and issuing further prohibition on the operation on Highway 
No. 20 east of Hamlet by the Miller Motor Express. 

H. Hunt & Company appeared and desired to intervene in the case and object 
to Miller Motor Express picking up local shipments in Fayette ville for Wilmington. 
The representatives of Miller Motor Express stated that it did not desire to make 
local pick-ups in Fayetteville for Wilmington and would also advise its drivers to 
cease this practice. This appeared to be satisfactory to H. Hunt & Company; 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That insofar as the petition of Pierce & Formy DuVal, Incorporated, 
for privilege to operate west of Hamlet, between Hamlet and Charlotte on High- 
No. 20, is concerned, it is hereby dismissed; but the petition of the said Pierce & 
Formy DuVal, Incorporated, asking for relief from the Miller Motor Express picking 
up and delivering on Highway No. 20 east of Hamlet is granted and the Miller 
Motor Express is hereby ordered to cease such practice. It is 

Further ordered, That Miller Motor Express cease to pick up in Fayetteville 
for points south and east on the lines served by H. Hunt & Company. 

By order of the Commission.

IN RE: PETITION SKYLAND STAGES, INCORPORATED, v. CAROLINA 
SCENIC COACH LINES 

The petitioner in the above entitled action has filed complaint against the Caro- 
lina Scenic Coach Lines alleging that it is in possession of evidence that the Carolina 
Scenic Coach Lines has solicited and transported passengers between Henderson- 
ville and Asheville in violation of certain limitations placed upon it in the original 
order which granted it authority to operate between Hendersonville and Asheville. 

The respondent in making answer has filed a motion with this Commission in 
which it alleges it can not meet the allegations without having detailed informa- 
tion, and as this is in the possession of petitioner it should be readily available to 
the respondent and to the Court. 

A copy of the motion filed with this Commission is attached to this order, and 
by this reference is made a part hereof. Therefore it is 

Ordered, That the Skyland Stages, Incorporated, be and it is hereby ordered 
to file specifications on or before the 20th day of March as to all violations alleged 
as to carrying passengers, issuing passes, the removal of plates and all other allega- 
tions in the complaint of which it has evidence or expects to place before the Utilities 
Commission at its hearing to be held at the Battery Park Hotel in Asheville, March 
27th, 1934, at 10:30 a. m.

IN RE: APPLICATION OF TRINITY MOTOR EXPRESS LINE FOR EX- 
TENSION OF ITS FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE NO. 276 

Order 

This is the petition of the Tri-City Motor Express Line, which was heard by the 
Commission on November 15, 1933. The petition was to extend petitioner's fran- 
chise, as follows: High Point to Julian, Highway Nos. 77, 610, 61; Julian to Liberty, 
Highway No. 60; Burlington to Asheboro, Highway Nos. 62 and 70; Asheboro to 
Siler City, Highway No. 23; Siler City to Liberty, Highway No. 60; Burlington to 
Danville, Highway Nos. 62 and 14; Yancey ville to Roxboro, Highway No. 48; 
Roxboro to Route 62, over Highway No. 144. 

Mr. I. M. Lassiter, owner of Tri-City Motor Express Line, appeared in behalf 
of his application and stated the extension was desired mainly for the purpose of 
transporting the product of certain mills in Burlington to Spindale to be dyed and 
returned to Burlington. He further stated the nature of the business was such 
that the shipments must be handled on schedules not convenient to the regular 
franchise operators and that it was not practical to make the transfers necessary 
to handling by such franchise carriers. 

Notice of the hearing of this petition had been given to the connecting carriers 
in the vicinity, who were present; and, after hearing the statement of the petitioner, 
they advised the Commission that they had no objection to what the petitioner 
proposed to do so long as his activity over their franchise routes was confined to 
the handling of these full load shipments, as that could be done under the casual 
trip provision of the statute. The Commission is of the opinion that the extension 
of the franchise for the purpose stated is not necessary; it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the application be, and it is hereby, denied. 

By order of the Commission.

APPLICATION OF ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY TO 
CLOSE AGENCY AT BUNN, NORTH CAROLINA AND MAKE THE 
SAME A PREPAY STATION 

Order 
This application is dated February 23, 1933, and hearing thereon was held in 

the hearing room of the Commission at Raleigh, N. C, April 12, 1933. The shipping 



124 N". C. Corporation Commission 

community at Bunn was represented at the hearing by Attorney I. T. Ballentine 
of Spring Hope, N. C, while General Superintendent O. H. Page of Rocky Mount 
appeared for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company. 

Bunn, N. C, is located on the Nashville Branch, nine miles from Spring Hope 
and thirteen miles from Lassiter. 

The importance of the agency from the standpoint of revenue of the carriers is 
due to the fact the Bunn agent transacts the entire business of the line west of 
Spring Hope, there being no other agency on this twenty-two miles of line. How- 
ever, the evidence shows the Rock Quarry industry is at a standstill and there are 
no prospects in sight for a resumption of operations of these quarries. 

In response to questions, applicant stated if the application is approved and the 
agent removed the business of this stub-end will be done through Spring Hope 
agency and in case of improvement in business an added clerk might be necessary. 

The total revenue for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company for the year 
1931 at this station was $7,235.84; for the year 1932, $4,301.43, a decrease of 
$2,934.41. The salary of the agent at Bunn, upon the reduced basis, is $116 per 
month or $1,392 per annum. 

The general contentions of the community are that the removal of the agent 
will inconvenience receivers of freight, particularly in the matter of caring for the 
goods after arrival and in the matter of receiving shipments collect on delivery. 
The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company expressed willingness to place in charge 
of the station a caretaker whose duty it will be, among others, to lock and unlock 
the station, to prevent thieving as far as possible. 

The Commission is of the opinion and so finds that with declining business as 
shown at this station and no prospects for a resumption of the chief industry on 
this line in sight within a reasonable period it would be unreasonable to require 
the continuation of the agency at Bunn. It appears to the Commission that with 
a caretaker in charge, the inconvenience and general detriment to the community 
by the discontinuance of the agency would be greatly minimized. 

It is, therefore, ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company 
be and the same is hereby authorized to discontinue its Agency at Bunn, N. C, 
on or before June 1, 1933, and 

It is further ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company be and 
they are hereby ordered and directed to place the Bunn station in charge of a care- 
taker whose duty shall be that usually delegated to caretakers generally at other 
stations on its line, and 

It is further ordered, That upon the resumption of increase in business, which 
may necessitate placing an additional clerk at Spring Hope Agency, that, instead, 
the Bunn Agency shall be reestablished.

COMPLAINT OF CAROLINA VENEER COMPANY, HIGH POINT, N. C, 
BY THAXTON RICHARDSON, TRAFFIC MANAGER v. APPALACHIAN 
RAILWAY COMPANY 

Order 

This is a claim of Carolina Veneer Company, High Point, N. C, through Thaxton 

Richardson, P. O. Box 612, Greensboro, N. C, alleged over-charge on Southern car 

181079, maple logs, covered by Appalachian Railway Company Bill of Lading dated 

at Ela, N. C, April 15, 1933, shipped by A. H. Eller, consigned to complainant at 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 125 

High Point. Shipment moved on Ravenstbrd, N. C, Waybill 29, dated April 17, 
1933, and Southern Ela, N. C, Waybill 50021, dated April 18, 1933. 

The Southern Railway applied its log rate less 25% while the Appalachian Rail- 
way collected on the car $29.16 for its haul from Ravensford to Ela, a distance of 
10 miles. The Commission's Circular No. 274 naming a log rate for this distance 
on short lines was in effect when the shipment moved and the correct revenue on 
this car, weighing 48,600 pounds, was $10.94 and the overcharge is, therefore, 
$18.22 plus 6% interest from May 2, 1933, until the overcharge is refunded. 

It is therefore ordered, That the Appalachian Railway Company be and 
it is hereby ordered and directed to refund the Carolina Veneer Company at High 
Point, N. C, through Thaxton Richardson, Traffic Manager, P. O. Box 612, Greens- 
boro, N. C, the sum of eighteen dollars and twenty-two cents ($18.22) plus 6% 
interest from May 2, 1933 on the car referred to herein, the refund to be made on 
or before August 10th, 1934. 

Necessary papers are transmitted herewith to Mr. J. A. Sisk, General Manager 
of the Appalachian Railway Company at Ela, N. C.

PETITION OF HIDDENITE GRANITE COMPANY IN THE MATTER OF 
ALLEGED OVERCHARGE AND REPARATION CLAIMS ON CRUSHED 
STONE, CARLOAD, FROM HIDDENITE AND GRANITE QUARRY, 
N. C, TO STATIONS ON THE CAROLINA AND NORTHWESTERN 
RAILWAY 

Order 
The above cause came on for hearing before the Commission, according to notice, 
in its hearing room at Raleigh, September 16, 1932. The petition in this case is 
dated December 28, 1931, and alleges failure on the part of Southern Railway to 
settle claims for overcharges previously filed with that company on shipments of 
stone from Hiddenite and Granite Quarry to points on the Carolina & Northwestern 
Railway. The petition was accompanied by detailed typewritten statements of 
claim showing dates of movement, car initials and numbers, name of consignees, 
rate charged and amount of alleged overcharge, and prayed for assistance in having 
settlement accomplished. Copy of petition and claim statement were served upon 
general freight officers of each, the Southern Railway, Carolina & Northwestern 
Railway and the Yadkin Railroad. 

At the hearing defendants moved for dismissal of the case upon the alleged grounds 
that there was no sufficient complaint of record, more particularly it was alleged 
because the letter referred to and treated as a complaint clearly appears to be a letter 
without the slightest resemblance of a petition. Further, it was alleged that even 
if sufficient as a complaint but merely in the form of a letter, it is defective because 
it is not addressed to the Corporation Commission which, alone, under the statute, 
has authority to entertain petitions for reparation and, further, it is stressed that 
the letter treated as a complaint does not ask for affirmative relief under the statute 
at the hands of the Commission. 

It was further alleged that the Carolina & Northwestern Railway and Yadkin 
Railroad were not referred to in the letter forming the complaint in such fashion to 
make these lines proper parties. 



126 ]ST. C. Corporation Commission 

The motion of defendants to dismiss was overruled. 

The letter comprising the complaint or petition and that showing service upon 
the carriers were and are, the Commission holds, sufficient. 

In the decision of the Interstate Commerce Commission, January 21, 1930, 
(161 I. C. C. 37), John L. Humbard Construction Company, v. Southern Railway, 
et al., the Commission said: 

"The term 'carriers under common control or management' has been denned 
to mean carriers generally controlled through ownership, lease or otherwise 
to the extent of controlling traffic policy even though separate corporate entity 
may be maintained. Blackshear Mfg. Co. v. A. C. L. R. Co., 87 I. C. C, 654, 
Livestock to, from and between points in Southeast, 91 I. C. C, 292, 101 I. C. C, 
105. Although the operating vice president of the Carolina and Northwestern 
testified that the traffic policy of that line is not directed by the Southern or any 
of its officers, on cross-examination he admitted that he 'would not hesitate to 
take orders' from his president, who, as has been stated, also is president of the 
Southern. It is apparent therefore, that the Southern is in a position to control 
the traffic policy of the Carolina & Northwestern, and that the two roads should 
be regarded as a single line for rate making purposes. It follows that the 
single-line scale of rates prescribed on crushed stone in Southern territory 
should have been established between the points considered. " 

In consideration of this finding of the Interstate Commerce Commission and, 
according to previous understanding with the Carolina & Northwestern manage- 
ment, our Commission, without hearing, amended its Circular No. 290 (see Supple- 
ment No. 1, effective August 1, 1930) placing the Carolina & Northwestern Railway 
in Group B instead of Group A as formerly. This gave the Carolina & Northwestern 
Railway the same classification grouping as other Southern Railway subsidiary 
lines. However, it so happens that the original application of Circular No. 290 
reads "On joint traffic between stations on Southern Railway and stations on other 
lines in Group B, apply Southern Railway single line rates." It will be observed 
that, technically, there is no provision for joint rates between the Carolina & North- 
western Railway on the one hand and the other subsidiary lines, including the 
Yadkin Railroad, on the other hand. 

Defendants contend their tariff was in exact accord with the Commission's group- 
ing circular and while this statement may be true it does not explain that this 
technical defect, although in existence for a long period had all along been disregarded 
in publishing joint rates with all subsidiaries until the case of providing for rates 
with the Carolina & Northwestern arose. 

Defendants do not oppose correction of this omission providing that Southern 
Railway single line rates shall apply as joint rates for the future, but they argue 
that these rates should not be applied retroactively, nor reparation awarded on 
shipments which have already moved. 

The Commission is of the opinion and so finds that claimants are entitled to 
to reparation on shipments moving from Granite Quarry to Lincolnton subsequent 
to August 1, 1930, based upon the difference between the joint line rate as charged 
and the single line rate which should have been charged and in the amounts as 
shown in detailed statement as follows:

The Commission is advised by claimant that a number of overcharge items shown 
in the original claim statement have already been adjusted with claimant and as 
to other items showing movements prior to August 1, 1930, the Commission is of 
the opinion and so finds that reparation should be denied. 

It is, therefore, ordered, That the Southern Railway Company be and it is 
hereby ordered and directed to pay to the Hiddenite Granite Company the sum of 
$440.56 upon presentation by the latter of freight bills and affidavit showing respec- 
tively identification of each shipment, and showing that the Hiddenite Granite

Company paid and bore the charges and is the proper party to receive the excess 
charges. 

It is further ordered, That this payment be made on or before June 15, 1933, 
together with six (6%) per centum interest from date of settlement of the original 
charges. 

It is further ordered, That the Carolina & Northwestern Railway Company 
and the Yadkin Railroad Company be and they are hereby ordered and directed to 
settle with the Southern Railway for their proper share of the claims herein ordered 
paid by the Southern Railway upon presentation by the latter of the bill upon

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF THE NEW HOLLAND COR- 
PORATION FOR AUTHORITY TO ABANDON THE USE OF THE NEW 
HOLLAND, HIGGINSPORT AND MT. VERNON RAILROAD FOR 
TRANSPORTATION PURPOSES 

Order 

Comes now the New Holland Corporation through its Attorney and President, 
George F. Thompson, of New York, and makes application to the Commission for 
authority to abandon entirely for transportation purposes their railroad known as 
the New Holland, Higginsport and Mt. Vernon Railroad, running from Wenona, 
N. C, in Washington County, to New Holland in Hyde County, and shows to the 
Commission the following: 

The records do not disclose that the New Holland, Higginsport and Mt. Vernon 
Railroad was ever incorporated as such but prior to 1925 it was operated under that 
name by the North Carolina Farms Company. 

In the year 1925, pursuant to orders and judgments of the Superior Court, 
North Carolina, this property was sold under the direction of the Court to Ben- 
jamin H. Byrom and by said Benjamin H. Byrom conveyed to the New Holland 
Corporation, which corporation was owning and operating a large tract of land in 
Hyde County, North Carolina, as a farm, the railroad being used for the sole purpose 
of transportation of property of the New Holland Corporation to and from the farm. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 129 

On November 29, 1926, the Interstate Commerce Commission made its ordef 
recognizing and permitting the abandonment of this railroad for the purposes or 
interstate and foreign commerce a copy of which order is filed with the proper 
commission of the State of North Carolina and is now on file with the Utilities 
Commission of North Carolina. 

Since 1926 this railroad has not been used at all as a railroad, has not operated 
any passenger carrying trains nor taken any freight except that belonging to the 
New Holland Corporation, has operated no trains on schedules and it has only been 
operated if, as and when required to transport the freight belonging to the New 
Holland Corporation. 

Recently, on account of the construction of a highway to said farm, said railroad 
is of no further benefit or use to the New Holland Corporation and the New Holland 
Corporation desires to remove it and dispose of the assets. 

I therefore respectfully request that the Utilities Commission of North Carolina 
consent to the abandonment of said railroad in its entirety and that the New Holland 
Corporation, its servants, agents or assignees, may be permitted to dispose of its 
equipment and property and abandon the use of the same for transportation purposes. 

It is therefore ordered, That our order dated April 21, 1927, authorizing this 
line of railroad to become a limited common carrier, be and the same is hereby 
withdrawn and cancelled. This will authorize the abandonment of the line 
as a limited common carrier insofar as concerns the records of the Corporation 
Commission.

IN RE: PETITION OF NORFOLK SOUTHERN RAILROAD TO DISCON- 
TINUE AGENCY AT McCULLERS STATION 

This petition was filed and notice was given to the public in the manner provided 
by the rules of the Commission and protest was filed by certain citizens of the com- 
munity affected by the proposed discontinuance. 

The matter was heard by the Commission and respondents suggested that, as 
saw mill operations were being inaugurated in that community, it would materially 
increase the revenue of the station. Investigation was made and it later developed 
that the lumber is being shipped from Sylvaola, a station near McCullers. 

The Commission is unable to find that there is sufficient business to maintain the 
agency at McCullers and, therefore, orders that the petition be granted.

Order 
The Seaboard Air Line Railway Company makes application for permission to 
discontinue its seasonal agency at Allenton, N. C, open during the months of 
February, March, April and May of each year, account of inadequate revenue to 
justify its continuance. 



130 N". C. Corporation Commission 

The Commission had this matter under consideration on the seventeenth inst., 
and Mr. W. L. Stanley, Chief Public Relations Officer of the company, appeared 
before the Commission with reference to the petition. It appears that the intention 
of the petitioner was advertised at the station on October 19 and none of the patrons 
of the office have written to the Commission with reference to it. It further appears 
that the total carload and less carload freight handled at this office during the 
months of February, March, April and May, 1933, amounted to only $178.20; 
therefore, the Commission is of the opinion that the revenue does not justify the 
service and it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the petition be granted and that this point be made a prepay 
station for the months of February, March, April and May of each year.

IN RE: DISCONTINUANCE OF RAILROAD TELEGRAPH SERVICE AT 
YOUNGSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA 

Order 

This order refers to the notice of the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company to 
the Commission, that it expected to discontinue its railroad telegraph service at 
Youngsville, N. C. By virtue of the arrangement which the railroad company 
has with the Western Union Telegraph Company, its agent-telegrapher at Youngs- 
ville has been handling the telegraph business at that point tor a number of years. 
The railroad company agreed to defer instituting the contemplated change until 
the Commission could have opportunity to determine if arrangement could be 
made for the handling of that part of the telegraph business affecting the public, 
since the railroad company had decided to dispense with railroad telegraph service 
at Youngsville. 

The Commission has no jurisdiction to require a railroad company to provide 
telegraphic service, nor is it of the opinion that there is sufficient business at Youngs- 
ville to maintain an independent telegraph office; but, it is of the opinion that there 
is sufficient telegraphic business originating at that point to warrant the main- 
tenance of service at least through some one of the telephone subscribers, who could 
receive, transmit, and make collection for messages to be transmitted by telephone 
to and from the office of the telegraph company in Wake Forest for the convenience 
of the public; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Western Union Telegraph Company is hereby directed to 
show cause on September 19, 1933, at eleven o'clock a.m., at the office of the Com- 
mission, in Raleigh, why the Commission should not require it to arrange an agency 
at Youngsville, N. C, for the purpose of receiving and transmitting messages for 
the convenience of the public. It is 

Further ordered, That copies of this order shall be served upon the local agent 
of the Western Union Telegraph Company; Mr. J. F. Price, District Superintendent 
of the Western Union Telegraph Company, Greensboro, N. C; the Mayor of Youngs- 
ville, N. C; and upon Mr. W. L. Stanley, Chief Public Relations Officer of the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway Company, Atlanta, Ga.

Order 

Hearing in the above matter was held in the hearing room of the Commission 
at Raleigh, September 16, 1932. Each of the carriers named in the caption, except 
the Carolina & Northwestern Railway, were formerly operated as a part of and 
under the name of the Southern Railway Company as shown by its North Carolina 
Local Tariff No. 6-A (Rate Issue No. F-4405), effective October 13, 1914. These 
lines were restored to their former charter names at different times and on dates, 
according to tariffs filed with the Commission, as follows : 

Asheville & Craggy Mountain Ry., Supplement No. 5 to Rate Issue No. F-5900, 

effective April 1, 1918. 
Asheville Southern Railway, Supplement No. 5 to Rate Issue No. F-5900, 

effective April 1, 1918. 
Atlantic & Yadkin Railway Co., Supplement No. 25 to Rate Issue No .F-4405, 

effective July 1, 1916. 
Carolina & Tennessee Southern Railway, Supplement No. 5 to Rate Issue No. 

F-4405, effective March 11, 1915. 
High Point, Randleman, Asheboro & Southern Ry., Supplement No. 25 to 

Rate Issue No. F-4405, effective July 1, 1916. 
State University Railroad, Southern Railway, I. C. C. A-9916, effective June 

30, 1925. 
Yadkin Railroad, Supplement No. 25 to Rate Issue No. F-4405, effective 

July 1, 1916. 

In restoring these short lines to their original names the tariffs were simply 
amended to continue the same rates as formerly applied. The Carolina & North- 
western Railway never has been operated as a part of the Southern Railway System 
as in the case of other lines. 

Following decision of the Interstate Commerce Commission, January 21, 1930, 
(161 I. C. C. 37), John L. Humbard Construction Company, v. Southern Railway, 
et al, in which the Commission said: 

"The term 'carriers under common control or management' has been defined 
to mean carriers generally controlled through ownership, lease or otherwise to 
the extent of controlling traffic policy, even though separate corporate entity 
may be maintained. Blackshear Mfg. Co. v. A. C. L. R. Co. 87 I. C. C. 654, 
Livestock to, from, and between Points in Southeast, 91 I. C. C. 292, 101 
I. C. C. 105. Although the operating vice president of the Carolina and North- 
western testified that the traffic policy of that line is not directed by the Southern 
or any of its officers, on cross-examination he admitted that he 'would not 
hesitate to take orders' from his president, who, as has been stated, also is 
president of the Southern. It is apparent, therefore, that the Southern is in a 
position to control the traffic policy of the Carolina & Northwestern, and that 
the two roads should be regarded as a single line for rate making purposes. 
It follows that the single-line scale of rates prescribed on crushed stone in 
Southern territory should have been established between the points considered." 

And, according to previous understanding with the Carolina & Northwestern 
management, our Commission, without hearing, amended its Circular No. 290 



132 N"-. C. Corporation Commission 

(see Supplement No. 1, effective August 1, 1930) placing the Carolina & North- 
western Railway in Group B instead of Group A as formerly. 

This gave the Carolina & Northwestern the same classification grouping as other 
Southern Railway subsidiary lines. However, it so happens that the original 
application of Circular No. 290 reads "On joint traffic between stations on Southern 
Railway and stations on other lines in Group B, apply Southern Railway single line 
rates. " It will be observed that technically, there is no provision for joint rates 
between the Carolina & Northwestern on the one hand and the other subsidiary 
lines on the other and it is this technical omission which raised the question now 
before us for determination. 

Carriers do not oppose the correction of this omission by providing that Southern 
Railway single line rates shall apply as joint rates between all the lines named, 
except that they oppose including the A. & Y. on the one hand and other subsidiary 
lines named on the other hand on the ground that the Atlantic & Yadkin Railway 
is not in the category with the other subsidiary lines in that its traffic policy, it is 
alleged, is not controlled by the Southern Railway (see I. C. C. Docket 25245), as 
found to be true in the case of the Carolina & Northwestern Railway. 

The Commission is of the opinion and so finds that all the lines named in the 
caption are and for rate making purposes in the future will be considered a part of 
the Southern Railway System, except that the evidence in this case being incon- 
clusive as showing the reasonableness of such action, we will not, at this time, require 
application of Southern Railway single line rates between the Atlantic & Yadkin 
stations on the one hand and stations on the Carolina & Northwestern on the 
other hand. 

Our Circular No. 352, being the current issue, will be amended accordingly.

SUPPLEMENTAL PETITION IN THE MATTER OF INCREASES IN 
FREIGHT RATES AND CHARGES BY J. E. TILFORD, CHAIRMAN, 
EXECUTIVE TRAFFIC COMMITTEE OF CARRIERS IN SOUTHERN 
GROUP 

Order 

For and on behalf of all steam railroads operating in North Carolina, supplemental 
petition is presented in the matter of increases in freight rates and charges through 
Chairman Tilford who represents that petitioners are confronted with an emergency 
threatening serious impairment of their financial resources and of their capacity to 
assure the public a continuance of efficient and adequate service. Because of this 
emergency petitioners submitted to the Interstate Commerce Commission a supple- 
mental petition in Ex Parte 103 (Fifteen Per Cent Case), praying for continuance 
after March 31, 1933, of these emergency charges and submits to this Commission 
a copy of said supplemental petition as Exhibit "A," forming a part of the applica- 
tion in this case and seeking to have this Commission approve for intrastste applica- 
tion in North Carolina a continuance of the emergency charges heretofore approved 
by the Commission in its order of January 7, 1932, to expire March 31, 1933, in 
the same manner and to the same extent as may be authorized by the Interstate 
Commerce Commission as a result of supplemental petition above referred to covering 
interstate traffic. 

Copy of this supplemental petition was furnished interested shippers in North 
Carolina who have previously been active in the emergency charges case as it related 
to both interstate and intrastate traffic. In response to this petition to the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission the proceeding was, by order of that Commission 
dated December 7, 1932, reopened for further hearing upon the following points : 

(1) Shall the surcharges at present in effect under the previous findings herein, 
be permitted to be continued by filing, upon short notice, tariffs similar in character 
to those by which they were originally made effective? 

(2) If such surcharges are continued, during what period shall they by permitted 
to remain in effect? 

(3) Shall permission to continue such surcharges, if granted, be without condition 
as to disposition of the revenue accruing therefrom? 

And the reopened proceeding, like the original one, was conducted under the coopera- 
tive plan with the State Commissions, the latter being represented by a committee 
of State Commissioners, those for the Southern group being Hon. Hugh White, 
President of the Alabama Public Service Commission, and the Hon. Harvey H. 
Hannah, Chairman of the Tennessee Public Service Commission, the same two 
gentlemen who served in the original case. 

Opportunity was afforded for presentation of testimony either at hearings which 
were had in both Washington, D. C, and Chicago, 111., or by verified statements of 
views on the issues presented in the reopened proceeding. Transcript of record of 
both hearings in the reopened proceeding was furnished our Commission as they 
were to all other State Commissions. 

Views of North Carolina shippers were presented in printed form before the 
Interstate Commerce Commission and copy furnished this Commission by the 
North Carolina Traffic League, Inc., through its president and Traffic Committee, 
contending that the surcharges should not be continued after March 31, 1933, the 
main reasons being "the true nature of the depression is inevitable deflation and 
this should be recognized and rates reduced rather than increased." 

Views were also filed by manager, Traffic Department, The North Carolina 



134 N*. C. Corporation Commission 

Cotton Manufacturers Association, opposing the continuance of the emergency 
charges and submits they should be removed on the present expiration date of 
March 31, 1933; one of the main reasons being "the experience through the past 
year has demonstrated that a continuance of the increased charges will not increase 
the carriers revenue but on the contrary such increased charges are mutually detri- 
mental to the interest of the carriers and the shipping public tending to restrict the 
flow of commerce and to retard the economical recovery of all industries including 
the rail transportation carriers." 

Numbers of firms and corporations filed objections of similar import. 

The Interstate Commerce Commission decided on March 7, 1933, by two majority 
of that Commission that the emergency charges should be continued on interstate 
traffic to September 30, 1933. On page 10 of the opinion is the following statement: 

"Giving due weight to the surrounding circumstances and conditions, and 
to the evidence presented in this record, as reopened, we are of opinion that 
the surcharges, as such, should be brought to an end, but that a reasonable 
period should be allowed during which the respondents will have an opportunity 
to file tariffs in the usual way proposing such readjustments in surcharges, as 
they feel they can justify." 

Taking into consideration statements made in the application to this Commission 
as well as to the Interstate Commerce Commission, the evidence developed at the 
hearings before that Commission at both Washington and Chicago, transcript 
record of which, together with copies of exhibits, are on file with us, this Commission 
is of the opinion and so concludes that the so-called emergency charges shall no 
longer be continued in effect in North Carolina. 

It is, therefore, ordered, That the petition in the above case be and the same 
is hereby denied. 

By order of the Commission.

The application is dated September 26, 1932, and recites, among other things, 
that the basis of rates sought to be established for intrastate application between 
points in North Carolina were established for interstate application between

points in Southern Territory and for intrastate application within the States of 
Tennessee and Kentucky, effective October 25, 1930; that rates on the same basis 
are in effect from Greensboro, N. C, to North Carolina destinations; that publica- 
tion of rates on the proposed basis will place all manufacturers of these products upon 
an equitable basis and will prevent unjust discrimination against manufacturers at 
Greensboro; that similar application will be filed with State regulatory bodies of 
other Southern States. 

Exhibit No. 1 attached to and made a part of the application describes in detail 
the basis sought to be applied in the revision, and by Amendment No. 1 to said 
application dated October 13, 1932, certain other items are added. 

At the hearing carriers contended proposed rates were reasonable and presented 
exhibits showing comparison of present and proposed rates; also comparison of 
proposed rates with rates on the same commodities in Official territory, South- 
western territory and from Central territory to Southern territory. Also statement 
showing rate level percentages of first class rates, ton mile, car mile and per car 
revenue on sewer pipe and farm drain tile, compared with like figures on various 
commodities in interstate commerce within Southern territory moving on rates 
fixed or approved by the Interstate Commerce Commission. 

Protestants presented exhibits showing extracts from decision of the Interstate 
Commerce Commission in 185 I. C. C. 639-657 at 647, which resulted in rates on 
pipe from Greensboro, N. C, to North Carolina points being revised and in which 
Commission Aitchison concurred in part, saying: 

"I concur in this report except as to its finding of undue prejudice. There 
is no definite showing that complainant in No. 21377 and its subnumbered 
case is in competition with the producers at Greensboro, N. C, and Columbia, 
S. C, at all points throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. Obviously, 
therefore, the existence of differences between the interstate and State rates 
does not prove that the lower State rates in all instances result in prejudice to 
complainant and preference of its competitors." 

Other exhibits were presented showing the comparison of proposed with present 
rates on sewer pipe, etc., in North Carolina and South Carolina and rates which 
would result, if carriers application is approved; also specifications of sewer pipe, 
average carloadings, production cost, etc. In the main protestants contend that 
the present rates in North Carolina are not less than reasonable maximum rates and 
that the proposed increased rates, if made effective in North Carolina, would drive 
more of the business to trucks. When figured out on a composite average for all 
distances, the result shows North Carolina intrastate rates, if carriers' application 
is approved, would receive a general increase on sewer pipe of 31 % and on farm drain 
tile of 25%. There are several sewer pipe manufacturers in the State, the greater 
number of which manufacture concrete pipe. The main Clay Pipe Manufacturing 
Company is that of the Pomona Terra Cotta Company, located at Terra Cotta, 
N. C, on the Winston-Salem branch of the Southern Railway about four miles 
southwest of Greensboro. Evidence shows this plant was located at this point in 
the year 1886. The plant now consists of 40 Kilns or four plants, socalled, valued 
at about $1,000,000 and the present owners and operators are descendants of the 
original projectors of the plant. The location was selected because of an abundance 
of clay at Terra Cotta at that time. The clay supply having become all but ex- 
hausted is now shipped in from Gulf, a distance of about 50 miles and Madison, a 
distance of about 30 miles. Other raw materials consist of coal and salt. The 
former comes from New River coal fields and the latter from Richmond and Norfolk. 

In a normal year production is around 3,000 carloads which requires over 400 
cars of coal and about 1,000 cars of clay. Outbound shipments of pipe within the 



136 N. C. Corporation Commission 

State by rail amounts to about 2,500 cars. Total freight revenue per annum paid 
rail carriers in normal years amounts to about $185,500.00. The average loading 
cost on outbound pipe is SI 1.55 per car which includes labor and lumber and is said 
to be packed in the most scientific manner known to prevent damage in transit. 

Truck transportation is increasingly more advantageous in many instances. In 
1930, 18% moved by truck; in 1931, 29%, and in 1932, 36%. Dealers who handle 
most of the products, in the last three years, like the truck loadings much better 
than carload business. The maximum truck load is 12,000 pounds as against 13 
tons minimum freight car. 

Mr. Boren of the Pomona Terra Cotta Company testified, to his belief, that if 
rates were increased, rail revenue on products of his plant would be considerably 
less on account of increase in truck movement. Upon cross-examination by carriers, 
Mr. Boren testified his competition with Dickey Clay Manufacturing Company 
is serious and that the latter company recently secured a contract at Burlington, 
N. C. This point is within thirty miles of Terra Cotta. 

Concrete pipe is manufactured by the State and shipped under the direction of 
the State Highway Commission. Traffic Manager Phelps of the State Highway 
Commission testified, to his belief, that an increase in freight rates would increase 
the truck movement which, he shows, is now 36%. 

A history of these (Class P) sewer pipe rates in North Carolina would show they 
have been in effect for many years and were originally made by the Southern Railway 
and adopted by the Corporation Commission as standard for all carriers when it was 
organized as a railroad commission about 1890. Of course, the rates have been 
revised and the scale extended but the principal charges in the measure of rates 
have been in the two 25% increases during the war period and the 10% horizontal 
reduction in July, 1922. 

The carriers have introduced no conclusive evidence to support their contention 
that present rates are less than reasonable maximum. They rely on what has been 
done to interstate rates. In other words the carriers, in substance, contend that 
intrastate rates should be on the same level as interstate rates, not because the 
present rates are less than reasonable maximum but because the level of interstate 
rates is higher. There are only two reasons which would support the views of the 
carriers. One is that the present intrastate rates cause undue prejudice to interstate 
shippers and the other that the intrastate rates, being less than interstate rates, 
cast a burden on interstate commerce. As to the first reason the record discloses 
that the interstate shippers are now shipping into the State freely. On the second 
point the record supports the conclusion that carriers would obtain less revenue 
from the proposed rates than under the present rates due to diversion of the business 
to other forms of transportation. 

The Commission is of the opinion and so finds that the present intrastate freight 
rates on sewer pipe and related articles have not been shown to be less than reason- 
able maximum rates. That on the contrary the history of the rates and the result 
therefrom is strong proof they are reasonable maximum rates and are all the traffic 
will fairly bear; that increase such as here proposed by the carriers would result in 
less shipping by rail and consequent increase in truck movement, thus giving the 
applicants less revenue. 

In view of these findings, based upon the evidence and best judgment of the 
Commission, it is ordered the application be and the same is hereby dismissed. 

By order of the Commission.

IX THE MATTER OF JOINT APPLICATION OF CARRIERS THROUGH 
CHAIRMAN J. E. TILFORD, OF THE SOUTHERN FREIGHT ASSOCIA- 
TION AND J. A. STREYER, GENERAL TRAFFIC MANAGER, AMERICAN 
SHORT LINE RAILROAD ASSOCIATION, ATLANTA, GEORGIA, THEIR 
No. 46, AND AMENDMENTS Nos. 1, 2, AND 3 THERETO, SEEKING 
AUTHORITY TO REVISE RATES ON IRON AND STEEL ARTICLES, 
LESS THAN CARLOADS, WITHIN NORTH CAROLINA 

Order 
This matter came before the Commission for hearing, pursuant to notice, at 
Raleigh, March 23, 1933. Carriers were represented by W. W. Wolford, Commerce 
Agent, Southern Railway, Washington, D. C. Protestants: Charlotte Shippers & 
Manufacturers Association, by W. S. Creighton, T. M., Charlotte, N. C; North 
Carolina Cotton Manufacturers Association, by Carl R. Cunningham, Manager, 
Atlanta, Ga.. and N. C. State Highway Commission, by J. Chas. Phelps, T. M., 
Raleigh, N. C. 

The original application is dated May 18, 1932, and seeks to cancel all existing 
less than carload commodity rates and classification exceptions on iron and steel 
articles between points in the State and apply, in the future, class rates governed 
by Southern Classification, Agent E. H. Dulaney, I. C. C. No. 34 as amended or 
reissued. 

Amendment No. 1 to the above joint application is dated August 20, 1932, and 
prays leave to amend Section 1 of the original application to provide for the publica- 
tion of a classification exception providing class 6 (40% of first class) rating on iron 
and steel articles as specified in Exhibit No. 1 attached to and made a part of said 
amendment. On articles not specified in said exhibit applicants desire to apply 
class rates governed by Southern Classification, Agent Dulaney I. C. C. No. 34, as 
amended or reissued. 

Amendment No. 2 to the above application is dated October 15, 1932, and prays 
leave to amend Exhibit No. 1 attached to and made a part of Amendment No. 1, 
by including argicultural implement parts as here described: 

Agricultural implement parts, other than hand, viz : Plow or cultivator parts, 
iron or steel, weighing each 25 pounds or over, loose, or in bags or bundles 
weighing each 25 pounds or over, or in barrels, boxes or crates, LCL. 

The inclusion of the commodities specified above in the fist attached to Amend- 
ment No. 1 will result in a proposed basis of 6th class in lieu of the classification 
basis (4th class) as originally proposed. 

Amendment No. 3 is dated January 10, 1933, and prays leave to amend the 
original application as amended by Amendments Nos. 1 and 2 by including Exhibit 
No. 1 attached to and made a part thereof, containing present and proposed rates. 

The application as amended states the rates proposed are reasonable and non- 
discriminatory and non-preferential, and are a part of the general readjustment of 
commodity rates within Southern territory, designed to harmonize the whole rate 
structure and eliminate maladjustments, and results in uniformity generally in the 
South. 

At the hearing carriers stressed the statement made in their application and 
presented statements in exhibit form purporting to show that movement of commodi- 
ties from representative shipping points were generally of a light nature and the 
difference in actual charges under proposed rates as compared with present rates 



138 2ST. C. Corporation Commission 

would be small in actual revenue. It was not contended that present rates are less 
than reasonable maximum or that unreasonable discrimination exists in present 
rates as compared with interstate rates. 

Protestants presented exhibits to show present carload rates on iron and steel 
articles within the State are the same as the interstate scale within the South and 
that the present less than carload rates are 50% higher than carload rates. The 
proposed less than carload rates would increase the basis to be 64.8% higher than 
the carload rates or an increase in the aggregate over present rates of 15 %. 

No good reason has been shown why present rates should be increased 15%. 
It is true, of course, that from carriers' standpoint it is desirable that rates be uni- 
form, both State and interstate, but this is not at all necessary where differences do 
not produce undue discrimination or place an undue burden on either intrastate or 
interstate commerce. 

In view of all the circumstances and conditions which have had due consideration, 
the Commission is of the opinion and so finds carriers have not justified the proposed 
revision of rates on iron and steel articles, less than carload, intrastate, in North 
Carolina. 

It is, therefore, ordered, That application be and the same is hereby dismissed. 

By order of the Commission.

IN THE MATTER OF CHAIRMAN TILFORD'S APPLICATION DATED 
MAY 1, 1933, SEEKING AUTHORITY TO REVISE RATES ON WATER- 
MELONS, CARLOADS, TO BASIS OF 30% OF FIRST CLASS RATES 

Order 

Hearing on the above application was held in the Commission's Hearing Room at 
Raleigh December 19, 1933. Carriers were represented by Mr. E. C. Hicks, Jr., 
Assistant to General Freight Agent, Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, Wilmington, 
N. C. Melon shippers and their representatives present were: E. T. Oliver, C. E. 
Upchurch, John McDiarmid, Raeford, N. C; F. F. McFall, Jim McFall, Red 
Springs, N. C, and C. W. Sheffield, Agricultural Department, State of North 
Carolina, Raleigh, N. C. 

The application sets forth that the existing intrastate rates on watermelons, 
carloads, in North Carolina, are the equivalent of rates established many years ago; 
that the Interstate Commerce Commission, after a complete investigation, has found 
reasonable for interstate level of rates on watermelons within Southern territory 
basis of 30% of contemporaneous first class rates and interstate rates have been 
revised upon that basis and became effective March 22, 1933. 

The application seeks to have our Commission approve the same basis for intra- 
state application in North Carolina. The carriers justify the proposed revision 
upon the grounds that the basis for revised rates has been found reasonable by the 
Interstate Commerce Commission for the entire Southern territory, including North 
Carolina, and, upon the further ground that the present North Carolina rates are so 
low that the carriers feel that owing to the great cost of handling melons, due to 
damage claims, they do not longer desire to handle them at the allegedly low rates 
as now in effect within the State. 

The shippers present at the hearing were shippers of melons in interstate commerce 
and were, therefore, concerned only in seeing that the increase in rates here proposed 
were not to be used as a stepping stone to higher interstate rates. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 139 

The carriers testified that their records show that the intrastate movement of 
melons in carloads in this State is nil, there having been only one carload moved last 
year. 

It will, therefore, be apparent that the approval of the proposed rates will mean 
little or nothing to the melon shippers. On the other hand since the revised inter- 
state rates are already in effect and having been declared reasonable by the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission for application throughout the South, and, in order 
to avoid further possible litigation, we are approving the basis of 30% of first class 
as applied for by the carriers. 

It is ordered, That Chairman Tilford's application on behalf of the carriers, 
dated May 1, 1933, seeking to make rates on watermelons, carloads, interstate in 
North Carolina on basis of 30% of the first class going rates, be and the same is 
hereby approved, effective February 1, 1934.

Docket No. 7585 (Corporation Commission). 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF AGENT SPEIDEN TO CANCEL 
RULE 1 OF COMMISSION'S CIRCULAR No. 339 

Order 

This carrier application dated February 17th, 1931, is in the form of a letter 
from former publishing agent J. J. Cottrell in which he seeks, among other things, 
to have this Commission authorize cancellation of Rule 1 carried in its Circular 
No. 339. This letter or application contained no request for hearing. The letter 
was quoted interested shippers who requested that cancellation be not authorized 
without a hearing and Agent F. L. Speiden (successor to Agent J. J. Cottrell) was 
so advised. Unter date of July 25th, 1933, Agent Speiden requested "if such a 
course is necessary . . . the matter be assigned for hearing." This was done 
and accordingly hearing was held in our hearing room at Raleigh on April 3rd, 1934. 

At the hearing North Carolina rail carriers in general were represented by Mr. 
H. V. Borjes. The Seaboard Air Line and Norfolk Southern railroads were repre- 
sented by Mr. G. R. Ward. Shippers' side was represented by Mr. Carl R. Cun- 
ningham, Traffic Manager of the North Carolina Cotton Manufacturers Association. 

Rule 1 of Circular No. 339 which carriers seek to have us either cancel entirely, 
or modify, reads as follows: 

"In applying any scale of rates from points of origin in North Carolina to 
destinations within this State, on intrastate traffic, rates so made shall in no 
case exceed rates from or to more distant interstate points from or to which 
there are through published rates and from or to which the intrastate origin 
or destination is directly intermediate." 

Carriers presented numerous exhibits at the hearing purporting to show unrea- 
sonableness and burdensomeness of application of the rule as now interpreted by 
shippers and propose a modified rule to which objection would not be made reading 
as follows: 

"In applying any scale of rates from points of origin in North Carolina to 
destinations within the State, on intrastate traffic, rates shall in no case exceed 
rates from or to more distant interstate points from or to which there are 



140 "N: C. Corporation Commission 

published through rates and from or to which the intrastate origin or destination 
is directly intermediate to the more distant interstate points. " 

Carriers further propose that the substance of the proposed rule be carried as a 
tariff provision in lieu of the rule itself providing for the safeguarding of shippers' 
interests against oversight on the part of carriers in literal compliance with the 
rule and promising prompt compliance and reparation when and if called upon. 

It will be noted that the difference betwe'en the present and proposed rule is 
the latter confines its application to routes via the rate making line or lines. 

Contention of shippers is that the present rule is reasonable and should not be 
disturbed except that it should be so amended as to clarify its meaning, since car- 
riers interpret the words "directly intermediate" in the rule to mean points directly 
intermediate on the short or rate making route, while shippers interpret these words 
to imply all applicable reasonable routes via which the rates are or may be applied. 

Shippers propose a substitute rule reading as follows: 

"Rates on North Carolina intrastate traffic shall in no case exceed interstate 
commodity rates on like traffic in the same direction where the intrastate haul 
is included within any interstate line or route over which such interstate com- 
modity rate applies. " 

It will be observed that this proposed rule would not apply to class rates but 
only commodity rates and without restriction as to circuity. In justification of their 
position shippers' witness gives several illustrations, typical among them are the 
two following: 

Cotton sheets, Durham to Atlanta; interstate rate being 72 cents for short 
line distance of 409 miles. The intrastate rate from Durham to Gastonia, 
which is directly intermediate between Durham and Atlanta, is 98 cents for 
short line distance of 171 miles. The proposed rule would limit the Durham- 
Gastonia rate to 72 cents, or the same as the Durham-Atlanta rate. 

Wrapping paper from Roanoke Rapids to Augusta takes rate of 223^ cents 
for distance of 374 miles. The intrastate rate on the same commodity from 
Roanoke Rapids to Greensboro, distance of 146 miles, is 27 cents. Except for 
observance of the Augusta rate as maximum, Greensboro is not directly inter- 
mediate via the shortest possible route from Roanoke Rapids to Augusta, but 
is intermediate via reasonable direct through route via Durham and Southern 
Railway. 

The application of the carriers' proposed rule would require observance of 4th 
Section principle via the short or rate making route only, while the rule proposed 
by shippers would require observance of the 4th Section principle via any and all 
routes employed by the carriers. The Commission's Rule 29 which is of long stand- 
ing and universal usage reads: 

"When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two or more routes 
over connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company 
making shipment to forward same by the shortest route unless the rate charged 
over the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter or unless otherwise 
ordered by the shipper." 

It will be observed that this rule does not require Fourth Section observance on 
intrastate traffic, but on the other hand requires carriers to accord unrouted business 
the lowest charge and the carriers an equal opportunity at the business provided 
they desire to compete. Carriers have accordingly filed with the Commission 
routing documents showing to what extent they will participate in competitive 
rates under this rule. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 141 

The Commission is of the opinion that a general intermediate rule of the nature 
here involved can not be made to prevent all discrimination and at the same time 
do substantial justice to both shipper and carrier. 

The Commission is of the further opinion and so finds that it would be an un- 
reasonable requirement to insist that the Fourth Section principle be observed via 
all intrastate routes in connection with interstate rates, but will be a reasonable 
requirement applicable only to short or rate making routes and applied only to 
commodity rates. 

It is therefore ordered, That all common carriers by rail within the State be 
and they are hereby ordered and directed to observe the following rule effective on 
and after August 15, 1934. 

"In applying rates from points of origin in North Carolina to destinations 
within the State, on intrastate traffic, rates shall in no case exceed commodity 
rates on like traffic from or to more distant interstate points from or to which 
there are published through commodity rates and from or to which the intra- 
state origin or destination is directly intermediate via the rate making line or 
lines from or to the more distant interstate points."

142 IN". C. Corporation Commission 

Mr. A. D. Fowlkes, representing the East Carolina Railway did not deny that 
his company, through its representative at Atlanta, acquiesced in establishment 
of joint line cotton scale to meet truck competition, but stated its experience under 
this scale had been his company is actually out of pocket money on cars already 
handled and, therefore, it has been determined they can not afford to longer parti- 
cipate in the joint scale. 

General Freight Agent Ware of the Norfolk Southern Railroad, which company 
protested retirement of the East Carolina Railway from participation in the scale, 
stated his company is simply acting in the interest of shippers whom they had 
solicited for business and who have contracts outstanding for movement of cotton 
and who would be damaged by the Commission granting the application. 

Mr. H. C. Cunningham, appearing for Rogers & Company, Norfolk Cotton 
Merchants, stated his company had entered into contracts for the movement of 
cotton by rail from Tarboro based upon rail-truck competitive rates in question and 
his company protested the granting of the application before contracts of his com- 
pany, now outstanding, expire. 

Mr. I. M. Porter, Traffic Manager, American Cotton Growers Cooperative 
Association, Raleigh Branch, stated his association objected to the granting of the 
application during the cotton shipping season which would run into March, 1933. 

The Commission is of the opinion and so finds it would be unreasonable to decline 
to grant application of the East Carolina Railway to retire from participation in 
this joint scale of truck competitive cotton rates, and compel them to haul the 
cotton throughout the entire season at a loss. 

It is therefore ordered, That the East Carolina Railway be, and it is hereby 
authorized through its publishing agent, Mr. F. L. Speiden, to amend Agent Speiden's 
Freight Tariff No. 224-B as per Agent Speiden's Intrastate Application No. 548, 
as follows: 

"Amend 'Exception' shown in Item 15- A of Supplement A to Tariff 224-B 
by adding the East Carolina Railway to list of lines via which rates apply only 
for single line hauls. " 

It is further ordered, That the effective date of the above change shall be 
January 1, 1933.

Order 

Comes now before the Commission the above claim consisting of Atlantic and 
Yadkin Railway Company, Ramseur, N. C, paid freight bill No. 30, dated May 9, 
1932, cover car N. & W. 81236 containing R. O. M. coal, covered by Carbonton,

from Haw Branch, N. C, consigned to I. F. Craven, Columbia Manufacturing 
Company, net weight 105,400 pounds, rate assessed $1.95 per ton, revenue collected 
$102.77. 

Affidavit is attached showing above revenue was paid and borne by the Wake- 
field Coal Company. The Norfolk Southern Railroad, in its rate issue No. 203, 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 143 

effective July 12, 1932, published a rate on coal, carload, from both Haw Branch 
and Carbonton to Ramseur of $1.28 per net ton and under this rate the revenue 
on the above car would be $67.46 or a difference in the charge collected and that 
resulting under the new rate, of $35.31. 

This is the amount complainants are asking be refunded them and it is the opinion 
of our Commission, and it so finds, that rate of $1.28 is reasonable. 

It is, therefore, ordered, That the Atlantic and Yadkin Railway Company 
and the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company (G. R. Loyall and L. H. Windholz, 
Receivers) be, and they are hereby, ordered and directed to pay reparation claim 
on this car of coal amounting to $35.31, settlement to be made on or before April 15, 
1933; voucher to be issued by the Atlantic and Yadkin Railway to the Wakefield 
Coal Company (O. A. Wakefield, owner), Sanford, N. C, and the Norfolk Southern 
to settle with the Atlantic and Yadkin Railway Company upon presentation of its 
proper amount of this refund.

156 JST. C. Corporation Commission 

IN RE: TELEPHONE DEPRECIATION 

Order 
(Subject to Hearing) 

An examination by the Commission into the matter of reserve for depreciation 
set aside by the telephone utilities of the State, reveals the fact that there is no 
systematic treatment of this phase of accounting by them, and due to the disparity 
of views, the net income of these utilities are not properly reflected in the reports 
filed with this Commission. In a number of cases the depreciation reserve is 
extremely abnormal, and this, too, in the face of the fact that year after year ade- 
quate cost of maintenance has been charged to operating expenses. 

This question has been under consideration for several years in connection with 
I. C. C. 14700, and this Commission is expecting to cooperate with the I. C. C. under 
paragraph (8) of its order of July 28, 1931, but in as much as the study of the question 
has involved much delay, and since questions have arisen which may cause further 
delay, it is, in the opinion of the Commission, time that it should declare a definite 
policy in this matter and regulate the amount which a utility may allocate each 
year for the purpose of maintenance and depreciation. 

Therefore, it is ordered, (1) That whenever a telephone utility has accumulated 
a depreciation reserve equal to 25% of the value of its plant and equipment, it 
shall not be allowed to set aside any further depreciation reserve until the accumu- 
lated reserve shall fall below the maximum above set. 

(2) That in cases where the depreciation reserve now exceeds the maximum above 
set, such utility shall not be allowed to set aside any further depreciation reserve and 
shall charge the cost of maintenance to depreciation reserve, instead of operating 
expenses, until said depreciation reserve shall fall below the maximum above set. 

(3) That in cases where the depreciation reserve is less than the maximum pre- 
scribed above, such utility shall not charge to operating expenses more than 3% per 
annum of the value of its plant and equipment for maintenance without specific 
authority of the Commission; and a reserve for depreciation not exceeding two per 
cent per annum of the value of plant and equipment except by specific authority 
of the Commission. 

(4) That each telephone utility shall credit to its depreciation reserve account 
annually an amount equal to interest on that part of its depreciation reserve invested 
in plant and equipment account at the rate of per cent of net earnings such utility 
made upon the book value of its investment in such property. 

(5) That the amount set forth in paragraph (3), for depreciation and to be charged 
to operating expenses shall be diminished by the amount of the sum added to the 
depreciation reserve account as set forth in paragraph (4). 

(6) That this order shall be applicable to the calendar year 1932, and the accounts 
as of that date shall be adjusted as herein prescribed and such adjustments shall be 
made monthly thereafter. 

(7) That each of the following telephone utilities shall show cause on the following 
dates why this order should not be issued as prescribed and made effective as stated 
in paragraph (6) herein:

Self, 
Clerk. 



The Commission has concluded its conferences with representatives of sixteen of 
the major telephone utilities in this State, representing probably 150,000 telephone 
stations. There are 101 telephone companies in the State; and, making a complete 
investigation of all these companies is such a huge undertaking that the Commission 
can not hope to complete its present study for some time. It has, therefore, reached 
the conclusion that it can not make a general order, affecting exchange monthly 
rental rates, but will have to deal with that subject with each individual company 
because of the dissimilarity of conditions under which they operate. It has reached 
the definite conclusion that there are certain fixed charges applicable to all telephone 
companies, commonly known as General Exchange Charges, which heretofore have 
appeared to be justified by conditions no longer existing and which charges, in the 
opinion of the Commission, should immediately be reduced to conform to the pro- 
posed order hereinafter set forth without awaiting complete investigation of the 
various rental rates; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That all telephone utilities operating in this State be, and they are 
hereby, directed to appear in the office of this Commission at ten o'clock a.m., 
Tuesday, August 8, 1933, to show cause, if cause they have, why the following order, 
setting forth certain charges for service connections, moves, miscellaneous equip- 
ment; prescribed base rate area boundaries, and providing for a proper differential 
rate to be charged for hand set telephone equipment (monophones), should not be 
made effective as of September 1, 1933. 



IN RE: GENERAL EXCHANGE CHARGES 
Order 
It is ordered by the North Carolina Corporation Commission, That, 
effective September 1, 1933, all telephone utilities operating in the State of North 
Carolina subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission be authorized and directed 
to charge the following rates for service, and no greater rates, and apply their 
exchange rental rates to the base rate boundaries prescribed, as follows: 

Service Connection Charges 
1. Service connection charges shall be made as follows: 

(a) Instrumentalities Not in Place. 

Individual line or party line service, each main station $2.00 

Private branch exchange trunks, each 2.00 

Extension stations and private branch exchange stations: 

Three schedules of service connection charges are applicable, based on 
the total number of company-owned stations connected with the 
exchange. Schedule 1 applies in exchanges having from 1 to 2,500 



158 ~N. C. Cokporation Commission 

stations; Schedule 2 applies in exchanges having from 2,501 to 10,000 
stations; and Schedule 3 applies in exchanges having more than 10,000 
stations. 

Schedules 
1 -...$ 3 

Business $1.00 $1.25 $1.50 

Residence .50 .75 1.00 

(b) Instrumentalities in Place. 

Where service is established by the use of instrumentalities already in place 
on the applicant's premises, provided no change is made in the type or 
location of such instrumentalities, except changes necessary because of 
a change in the class or grade of service: 

Individual line or party line service: 

Each main station $1.00 

Each extension station No charge 

Private branch exchange service: 
Each system $1 .50 

Moves 

2. Maximum charges for moving telephone equipment on subscriber's premises 
shall be, as follows: 

Individual or party line service, each main station $1.50 

Extension stations and private branch exchange stations: 

Three schedules of maximum move charges shall be applicable, based on the 

total number of company-owned stations connected with the exchange. 

Schedule 1 applies in exchanges having from 1 to 2,500 stations; Schedule 

2 applies in exchanges having from 2,501 to 10,000 stations; and Schedule 

3 applies in exchanges having more than 10,000 stations. 

Schedules 
12 3 

Business $1.00 $1.25 $1.50 

Residence .50 .75 1.00 

Miscellaneous Equipment 

3. Hand telephone, French or monophone, sets shall be furnished within the 
State of North Carolina at a maximum rate of 25 cents per month for each such hand 
set in addition to the rate applicable for desk sets to the service or facility furnished 
by the company to its subscribers. 

4. Cords in lengths in excess of standard length cords may be furnished in the 
lengths and at the maximum installation charges following: 

Between bell box (or connecting block) and desk set or hand set mounting: 

9 feet $1.50 

13 feet 2.50 

25 feet 3.50 

Between mounting of hand set and transmitter-receiver: 

9 feet $1.50 

The above installation charges shall apply in connection with new installations 
or in connection with the replacement of a cord by one of different length. When a 
subscriber who has had a long cord in use changes his location and desires the same 
length cord at the new location, no charge shall be made for installation at the new 
location. 

Replacement of long cords with a cord of the same length, when necessary for 
maintenance reasons, shall be made without charge. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 159 

Existing subscribers for long cords, who, on September 1, 1933, shall have paid 
in monthly rentals an amount equal to or exceeding the above specified installation 
charges for the respective length cords, shall pay no further monthly charges. Such 
existing subscribers for long cords whose monthly rentals have not equalled the 
specified long cord installation charge shall continue to pay the present monthly 
rentals until the above specified installation charges for the respective cord lengths 
have been paid. 

Base Rate Areas 

5. Where Base Rate Area Boundaries extend outside the corporate area of any 
city or town in which an exchange is located, they shall so remain until changed by 
order of this Commission; but, where such base rate area boundary comes within 
any such corporate boundary, the base rate area is hereby extended to such corporate 
boundary. 

By order of the Commission. 

This July 26, 1933. R. O. Self, 

Docket No. 7317 (Corporation Commission). Clerk. 

IN RE: GENERAL EXCHANGE CHARGES 

Order 

On July 26, 1933, the Commission issued an order to all telephone utilities in the 
State to show cause why the reductions in existing rates set forth in said order should 
not be promulgated effective September 1, 1933, and succeeding billing. 

This order was served on 101 telephone utilities, about 75 of which appeared 
before the Commission on August 8th and presented their various reasons why 
all, or certain parts, of said order should not be made effective as proposed. 

The proposed order reduced the installation charge on Instrumentalities Not in 
Place. Since considering the evidence presented at the hearing the Commission 
is undecided as to just what disposition to make of this particular charge and is 
leaving it out of this order and expects to deal with that in a separate order, but it 
hereby reserves the right to make a further order with reference to this feature of 
the proposed order without further hearing. 

The proposed order set up a rate for a 9-, 13- and 25-foot cord. Since hearing the 
evidence, the Commission has found that the 25-foot cord should be eliminated, 
leaving the other charges for cords as originally proposed. 

The proposed order provided an adjustment of the Base Rate Area boundaries. 
Since hearing the evidence, the Commission is of the opinion that this should be 
eliminated from this order as this question should be treated separately with respect 
to each exchange. The Legislature has not regarded the density of population in 
fixing corporate boundaries and the Commission, therefore, can not follow corporate 
boundaries in fixing base rate areas and will have to deal with each case separately 
when base rates are made for each exchange. 

The proposed order provided for a reduction of the present extra charge of 50 
cents to 25 cents on the monophone set. Since hearing the evidence presented on 
the 8th and reviewing that presented before other regulatory bodies, it is evident 
that the additional monthly maintenance cost exceeds that of other types of desk 
phones, therefore, our original conclusions are confirmed; furthermore, the Com- 
mission is of the opinion that if the differential between it and the upright desk 
phone is completely eliminated, as it may be in the future, or reduced to an amount 
so small that there would follow a considerable demand for this more convenient 
and more efficient type of instrument, it would necessitate the expenditure of large 



160 N". C. Corporation Commission 

sums for the purchase of new instruments, which the Commission knows many- 
companies in the State have neither the capital nor the credit to meet. The Com- 
mission is of the opinion that the rate set up in the proposed order should be made 
effective. 

Therefore, it is ordered, That, effective September 1, 1933, and subsequent 
bxlling, the telephone rates for the classes of service hereafter set forth shall be at the 
following rates to wit: 

Service Connection Charges 

1. The following classes of service shall be at the following rates: 

(a) Instrumentalities Not in Place. 

(Subject to further order without further hearing.) 

(b) Instrumentalities in Place. 

Where service is established by the use of instrumentalities already in 
place on the applicant's premises, provided no change is made in the 
type or location of such instrumentalities, except changes necessary 
because of a change in the class or grade of service: 

Individual line or party line service: 

East main station $1.00 

Each extension station l_No charge 

Private branch exchange service: 

Each system $1.50 

Moves 

2. Maximum charges for moving telephone equipment on subscriber's premises 
shall be as follows: 

Individual or party line service — Each main station $1.50 

Extension stations and private branch exchange stations 1.00 

Miscellaneous Equipment 

3. Hand telephone, French or monophone, sets shall be furnished within the 
State of North Carolina at a maximum rate of 25 cents per month for each such 
hand set in addition to the rate applicable for desk sets to the service or facility 
furnished by the company to its subscribers. 

4. Cords in lengths in excess of standard length cords may be furnished in the 
lengths and at the maximum installation charges following: 

Between bell box (or connecting block) and desk set or hand set mounting: 

9 feet $1.50 

13 feet 2.50 

Between mounting of hand set and transmitter-receiver: 

9 feet $1.50 

Above installation charges apply in connection with new installations and with 
replacement of a cord by one of a different length, except that no installation charge 
is made for replacement of a long cord with a standard length cord. 

Replacements of worn or defective cords with one of the same length are made 
without installation charge. 

Existing subscribers for long cords, who, on September 1, 1933, shall have paid in 
monthly rentals an amount equal to or exceeding the above specified installation 
charges for the respective length cords, shall pay no further monthly charges. 
Such existing subscribers for long cords whose monthly rentals have not equalled 
the specified long cord installation charge shall continue to pay the present monthly

rentals until the above specified charges for the respective cord lengths have been 

paid.

IN RE: COMMISSION'S ORDER OF AUGUST 25, 1933, WITH REFERENCE 
TO "GENERAL EXCHANGE CHARGES" FOR TELEPHONE UTILITIES 

Order Amending Order of August 25, 1933 
At the time of the issuance of the Order of August 25, 1933, reducing certain 
general exchange charges, the Commission reserved for "further order without 
further hearing" the reduction of service connection charges for instrumentalities 
not in place, because it had not at that time determined to its satisfaction just what 
reduction would be reasonable. 

In its order to the several telephone utilities dated July 26, 1933, they were 
commanded to show cause why this rate for service connection of instrumentalities 
not in place should not be $2.00. Some evidence was presented at the hearing on 
August 8, 1933, the return day of the order, which caused further study by the 
Commission of this particular charge, and this evidence and further study have 
resulted in a change of our opinion with reference to the original proposed reduction; 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That sub-paragraph (a) of paragraph 1, page 2, of the order of August 
25, 1933, relating to "General Exchange Charges," be, and it is hereby, amended, 
effective September 25, 1933, by inserting at the end of the words, "Instrumen- 
talities Not in Place," the following: 

Individual line, or party line service — each main station $2 .50 

Private branch exchange trunks — each___ 2.50

IN RE: PETITION CONCORD TELEPHONE COMPANY FOR INCREASE 

IN CAPITAL STOCK 

Order 

The petition was heard by the full Commission and is the application of the 
Concord Telephone Company for increase in capital stock from $48,000.00 to 
$120,000.00. 

The books of this petitioner probably show more correctly the money actually 
invested in plant than any other property of its kind within our jurisdiction. As of 
December 31, 1933, its annual report shows Plant and Equipment, $237,701.24, and 
an inventory and appraisal as of same date gives $311,010.00 not including undis- 
tributed cost of property estimated to be 18% of valuation, and also exclusive of 
Going Value and Working Capital. 

The property has been exceedingly economically built up and operated during 
the whole period of the company's existence. The officers, being the stockholders, 
have exacted small salaries, reasonable dividends, and the earnings charged to 
surplus annually have not been exorbitant, therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition be granted.

in Hyde County, who is asking for a franchise to acquire, properly construct and 
operate telephone property in the County of Hyde, and in particular to operate

the hour at which it was set and advertised in the press ten days prior to the hear- 
ing and no objection was manifest at the hearing, and there is no telephone service 
in that part of the county other than that which is being operated by this property, 

Therefore, it is the opinion that it will serve public convenience and necessity, 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That Mr. Latham's petition be granted.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE MONROE TELEPHONE COMPANY FOR 
INCREASE IN CAPITAL STOCK 

Order 

At a meeting of the Commission, at which all the Commissioners were present, 
the Petition of the Monroe Telephone Company for increase in its capital stock 
from thirty thousand dollars to sixty thousand and pay a dividend from surplus 
$15,000 or increase the capital to seventy-five thousand with no dividend from 
surplus. 

The book set up of petitioner, December 31, 1933, shows current assets, principally 
in cash and notes, of $29,429.59; fixed assets, plant less depreciation, $11,237.25; 
making a total of $40,666.84. 

Petitioner proposes to increase the current assets, by including certain items 
which have been erroneously omitted, to $31,685.10; increase, by appraisal, the 



168 NT. C. Corporation Commission 

fixed assets to $70,000.00 less depreciation of $8,549.00, making same $62,255.00, 
making total assets of $93,940.10 of which accounts payable do not exceed $1,300.00. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the real value of the property is greater 
than that reflected by the books of the Company because they have not been kept 
in a manner which would reflect the true value of the growth of the plant or the 
proper depreciation, but the Commission can not permit the increase of capital in 
the form of a stock dividend where there is any uncertainty as to full values claimed, 
therefore, an increase of the capital to $45,000, with permission to double the 
depreciation reserve, appears to be as far as the Commission can go under the 
circumstances, therefore, making the Fixed Assets $53,706.00 after depreciation 
of $17,098.00. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Monroe Telephone Company be permitted to increase its 
present capital stock to $45,000.00 and its reserve for depreciation to $17,098.00 
as of July 1st, 1934.

IN RE: INCREASE IN CAPITAL STOCK OF THE NORTH STATE TELE- 
PHONE COMPANY, HIGH POINT 

Order 

This is the petition of the North State Telephone Company, of High Point, for 
authority to increase its capital stock from three hundred and twenty thousand 
dollars to five hundred thousand dollars. 

This application was filed with the former Commission October 28, 1933, and 
representations were made by the petitioner that it had an investment of $753,063.51 
as of January first of that year. No appraisal of this property had been made by 
the Commission and the most recent available appraisal was made under the direc- 
tion of the petitioner, therefore, after a careful study of the merits of the petition, 
it was decided that the request could not be granted without first establishing the 
value of the property by an appraisal by engineers of our own choosing and at 
present current prices. 

This was agreed to by the petitioner and the Commission employed the Gustav 
Hirsch Organization of Columbus, Ohio, who made the inventory and appraisal as 
of December 1, 1933, and filed a detailed report February 14, 1934, which showed 
the value of the total physical plant, including material and supplies, as $708,942.39, 
and overhead, working capital, and going concern values of a total of $190,789,76, 
making a grand total of $899,732.15. In 1923, the total investment in the property 
was $316,920.35. The capital stock was then $80,000.00, the surplus $165,233.26, 
and depreciation reserve $60,246.71. At that time there were 2,300 company-owned 
telephone stations with toll lines connecting Thomasville, Asheboro, Randleman, 
Greensboro and Winston-Salem. Between 1923 and 1929, the company-owned 
stations grew to 4,700. 

This property has been personally operated by the majority owners of the stock 
who have seen it grow from 59 stations in 1899 to its present size. There is every 
evidence of its having been operated at an exceedingly low cost and much of the 
revenues from operation, instead of being paid out in salaries, has been utilized in 
expanding the property, and by so doing, the few original stockholders have been 
able to meet the investment demand in the properties' growth without calling upon 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 169 

the public generally to subscribe to its capital stock. This investment from revenues 
increased the surplus account very rapidly and for many years it has been the 
custom of the company to issue additional capital stock against its surplus account 
whenever such account equaled or exceeded the outstanding capital stock. That 
is what the petitioner seeks in this case. At the time the application was filed its 
surplus was $185,260.86 and it is desired to increase the capital $180,000.00 and 
reduce the surplus a like amount, and while such a transaction would not increase 
the fixed capital, it would increase the dividend liability to the extent that dividends 
may be payable. 

On December 31, 1933, the petitioner reports a surplus of $188,837.72, deprecia- 
tion reserve $265,265.16 and as hereinbefore stated, capital stock $32,000.00, total 
$776,096.26. Without discussing various regulatory, supervisory, and accounting 
reasons why authority should not be granted for the full amount requested, the 
principal objection is that such action would reduce the surplus to $8,837.72, and 
the ratio to the fixed capital is too great for the proper guaranty of service to the 
public, therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition for an increase in capital stock of $180,000.00 be and 
the same is hereby denied, but that the petitioner, the North State Telephone 
Company, be and it is hereby authorized to increase its said capital stock, as of 
January 1, 1934, in the sum of $80,000.00.

IN RE: CITY OF GOLDSBORO v. SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND 
TELEGRAPH COMPANY— PETITION FOR REDUCTION OF RATES 

, Opinion and Order 

The petition is this cause was filed by the City of Goldsboro September 20, 1933, 
asking that the rental rates applicable to the Goldsboro Exchange of the Southern 
Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company be reduced. The petition was served upon 
the respondent and was heard on November 28, 1933, the petitioner being represented 
at the hearing by its counsel, Wyatt E. Blake, and respondent by its Carolinas 
Manager, Fred J. Turner. 

The petitioner avers that it entered into a contract with the respondent on August 
21, 1916, wherein more than seventy-five per cent of the subscribers agreed to a 
certain increase in rental rates upon the condition that the telephone company 
purchase a lot, erect a brick building, install a multiple common battery switchboard, 
and, in certain areas within the City, place its overhead wires in underground con- 
duits; and after the completion of such improvements and until 2,500 stations were 
installed and connected, the rates charged for the service would not exceed the 
rates charged for the same class of service in any other city or town in the State 
under similar conditions, 

and in no event, shall the rates charged for the following classes of service exceed: 

Unlimited Special Line Business per month $4. 00 

Unlimited Duplex Line Business per month 3.50 

Unlimited Special Line Residence per month 2.50 

Unlimited Duplex Line Residence per month 2. 00 



170 "N. C. Corporation Commission 

that on May 31, 1921, after petition and hearing, wherein the petitioner asked 
for a 22.11 per cent increase in rates, the Commission granted an approximate ten 
per cent increase and that at no time since August 21, 1916, have 2,500 stations 
been connected with the exchange in question; that during the year 1932 the station 
average was 1,672; that during the peak of prosperity the greatest number of stations 
slightly exceeded 2,100; that the present rates are exorbitant, unfair, and exces- 
sive; that other towns of similar size have lower rates; that the respondent's invest- 
ment is excessive and out of proportion to the needs of the community, due to the 
fact that the respondent is a subsidiary of the American Telephone and Telegraph 
Company and installs its equipment under contracts dictated by the parent company 
and with equipment furnished by the Western Electric Company under contracts 
which it dictates; that the rates in effect prior to 1921 are sufficient to raise adequate 
revenues for a fair return upon the fair value of the property used and useful in the 
present service, and asked that the present rates be reduced to the level of the 
rates in force August 21, 1916. 

The respondent denied that the petitioner had a right to fix rates by contract 
and averred that said agreement was used merely for the purpose of advising the 
Commission what rates would be satisfactory to the subscribers in return for the 
service which respondent proposed to render and that as proof thereof the respondent 
company filed said agreement with this Commission; that the Commission had the 
terms of the agreement before it in May, 1921, at the time it heard respondent's 
petition for an increase in rates; that it had carried out its part of the contract with 
reference to investment in property and improvement in service facilities; that its 
investment properly chargeable to its Goldsboro Exchange, exclusive of long dis- 
tance investment, exceeds $238,000 and its investment, including all classes of 
property, is in excess of $426,000; that its return on all classes of property invest- 
ment for the first eight months of 1933 was 4.38 per cent and that operating expenses 
have increased by compliance with the telephone code under the NRA and that 
unless it is permitted to earn a fair return on the fair value of its investment, it 
can not continue to give efficient service; that its business was, and is, economically 
and efficiently conducted; that in the year 1932 it was able to earn only 2.42 per 
cent on the fair value of its property in this exchange and that its earnings from 
rental revenue for the year 1933 will probably not exceed 5.20 per cent and that 
any reduction in rates would be equal to confiscation and taking property without 
due process of law in violation of the laws of the land, and that if any change be 
made, said rates should be increased, and asked that the petition be dismissed. 

The petitioner presents three issues: 

1. The contract. 

2. The respondent's investment is in excess of the community needs to give 

the service being rendered. 

3. Rates in Goldsboro are higher than other cities of comparable size. 

The Commission can not recognize the contract. The Supreme Court, on appeal 
from this Commission in the Southern Power Company case, has decided such 
contracts to be void to establish rates, but the telephone company did agree to the 
rate which is being asked by the petitioner at a time when material and labor were 
both higher than at the present time; therefore, it may be admitted that the contract 
is the best evidence presented at the hearing as to what is a reasonable rate for an 
exchange of like size under conditions somewhat similar to those existing at that 
time. It is true the company made additions to the property after the agreement 
was made, but it further agreed the rate should remain the same as at the time 
of the agreement until such time as the number of stations had increased to 2,500. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 171 

As to the second contention, that the investment is excessive, it is evident that 
the property was rebuilt at a time when prices that entered into the construction 
were not only high but, in many instances, were made unreasonably high for the 
purpose of discouraging such construction, to say nothing of the further contention 
of the petitioner on this subject. 

As to the third contention, we believe that telephone service in Goldsboro is worth 
no more to the consumer than it is in other cities of approximately the same size 
and no sound reasons have been presented why rates in Goldsboro should be higher. 

At the time the company made the agreement in question, the only complaint 
being made by the subscribing public was as to the service. Industry was looking 
forward to building and financing for the future. This caused the Commission to 
say, in a communication to the Governor in 1922: 

"Continual demands are being made for extension of service, and the utilities 
must plan comprehensively to meet such demands. The development and 
growth of any business or industry requires capital, and financing must of 
necessity precede construction. Money is a commodity of world-wide demand, 
and seeks the market affording the safest and surest returns, and can not be 
obtained unless the investing public is assured safety of investment and con- 
tinuity of returns. " 

These reasons prompted the Commission to grant the increase in the rates of this 
exchange in 1921, which increase has been enjoyed by the respondent since that 
time; and, until the filing of the petition under consideration, no formal complaint 
has been registered from that community. Without appraising the property in 
question, the Commission is not in a position to determine accurately what rate 
will be reasonable, but we are of the opinion that the rate requested is a reasonable 
rate at the present time for the service in a city the size of Goldsboro and should 
yield a fair return on what we believe to be the present day fair value of the used 
and useful property in said exchange; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition be granted and that, effective with the January, 1934,

IN RE: INVESTIGATION OF CHARGES FOR PRESS SERVICE, TELE- 
PHONE AND TELEGRAPH LOOP, DROP, AND LEASE WIRE 

Order (exparte) U-9 

For some time complaints have come to this office with reference to the charges 
for that which is known as telegraph and telephone press service — particularly the 
wire, drop, and loop rates. During my brief study of this question I have been 
unable to find where these rates have been the subject of any extensive investiga- 
tion, and prior to the enactment of Chapter 327, Public Laws, 1933, it is doubtful 
whether our statute provided for the regulation of such rates. 

Of the rates proposed to be investigated under this Order, the most serious com- 
plaints come from the subscribers to the service of the press associations, and 
particularly from the publishers of papers in smaller cities and towns who feel that 
the rates they are required to pay are excessive. 



172 N. C. Corporation Commission 

Instances have come to my attention unofficially that certain performances, not 
located in a city where a radio broadcasting station is located, could not be broad- 
cast because of the expense of the leased wire service from the place of performance 
to the broadcasting station. The public generally has not yet realized that this is 
a service now affected by a public use, therefore, there is comparatively little demand 
from the standpoint of the general public with reference thereto, but since this 
investigation is expected to go far into the question of leases and contracts for 
wire service of all kinds, it is thought proper to let the scope of this investigation 
include such type of service. 

To what extent the regulation of charges for the news service is within the juris- 
diction of this Commission will be determined after hearing, but without evidence 
to the contrary, it appears that the drop and loop service is subject to regulation 
under our statute, 

Therefore, it is ordered, That the

or leases, contracts or other agreements for, or relating to, the distribution of in- 
telligence for publication, or other use, for the purpose of showing cause at that

IN RE: INVESTIGATION OF CHARGES FOR PRESS SERVICE, TELE-

Order Amending Order (exparte) U-9 
On April the twenty-seventh, 1934, the Commission issued an order directing 
eighteen major telephone companies operating in this State, the Western Union 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 173 

Telegraph Company, the Postal Telegraph and Cable Company, the Associated 
Press, and the United Press to appear by representative before it on May the 
fifteenth, 1934, to show cause why certain charges for the service mentioned therein 
were not unreasonable and should not be reduced. 

From the evidence presented at the hearing it became evident that it would be 
necessary to get certain information from the American Telephone and Telegraph 
Company, as it was stated at the hearing that certain questions asked with reference 
to charges could not be answered by representatives of its subsidiary companies, 
therefore, the hearing was adjourned until 10:30 o'clock on June the fourth, 1934, 
the hearing to be continued in the office of the Commission in Raleigh at that time, 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Order (Ex Parte) U-9 be amended by adding after the words 
"United Press" the words "American Telephone and Telegraph Company" and it is 

Further ordered, That the said American Telephone and Telegraph Com- 
pany shall appear before this Commission at 10:30 o'clock, a. m., at its office in 
Raleigh, Monday, June the fourth, 1934, through its representative who is familiar 
with its charges, leases, and contracts for wire, loop, drop and teletypewriter service, 
or leases, contracts or other agreements for, or relating to, the distribution of in- 
telligence for publication, or other use, for the purpose of showing cause at that 
time, if it has cause, why the rates referred to and which are charged at the present 
time are not unreasonable and should not be reduced, and it is 

Further ordered, That the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, 
through its representative, at that time be able to show the distribution between 
it and other holding or subsidiary companies of the revenues collected from such 
sources.

IN RE: TELEPHONE RENTAL RATES SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE 

COMPANY 

Order (Ex Parte U-10) 

The General Assembly of North Carolina, in Chapter 134, Section 18, of the 
Public Laws of 1933, in creating this Commission enjoined upon the Commissioner 
an investigation of all utility rates, and telephone rates in particular, in order that 
property values of utilities might be determined for the fixing of fair and equitable 
rates and charges. 

Immediately upon being inducted into office, I issued an order requiring all public 
utilities to file complete detailed inventories and present values of all their properties, 
which information is a prerequisite to a determination of what are fair and equitable 
rates. 

For the last three months pursuant to said order, various utilities of the State 
have been engaged in complying with said order and, on the 25th day of April, 1934, 
the Southern Bell Telephone Company filed with the Commission the segregated 
inventory of its properties in the City of Raleigh, supplementing its general inventory 
previously filed. 

After a careful investigation of the said inventories, including the inventory of 
its segragated Raleigh properties, and after a review and analysis of the Annual 



174 "N. C. Corporation Commission 

Reports and special data submitted by the company at the request of this Com- 
mission, and in light of the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in 
the Illinois Bell Telephone Company Case handed down Monday, April 30, 1934, 
it appears to the Commissioner that the income of the Company is in excess of a 
fair return upon a fair value of its properties and that its exchange rates are unrea- 
sonably high in the City of Raleigh and throughout the State and should be reduced. 
It is therefore ordered, That the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph 
Company be and the same is hereby directed to appear before the Utilities Com- 
mission on Thursday, the 17th day of May, 1934, at 10:00 o'clock, a. m., at the 
office of the Commission in the City of Raleigh, and show cause, if any it has, why 
the present exchange rates in the City of Raleigh should not be reduced as much, 
as hereinafter stated, or more: 

Proposed 
Residential Rates. Per Month Present Reduced

All Extensions — Business and Residence .75 to 1.50 .50 

It is further ordered, That the exchange rates of this Company, at its other 
exchanges throughout the State, shall be reduced according to telephone popula- 
tion on the basis of the reductions provided for the City of Raleigh, said basis to 
be developed at the hearing and determined by the Commission in its decision.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE WESTERN CAROLINA TELEPHONE COM- 
PANY FOR APPROVAL OF EXCHANGE RATES AT CULLOWHEE, 
NORTH CAROLINA 

Order 
The Western Carolina Telephone Company, with principal office at Franklin, 
North Carolina, makes application for certificate of public convenience and necessity, 
authorizing the acquisition of the telephone properties now owned and operated by 
the Cullowhee Telephone and Power Company, and, also, makes application for 
approval of exchange rates at Cullowhee, North Carolina. 

Cullowhee is an unincorporated town in which there is at present a telephone 
exchange recently purchased by the Western Carolina Telephone Company from 
the Cullowhee Telephone and Power Company, with which exchange there are 
approximately fourteen telephones connected and to which part time service is 
given at rates of $3.00 per month for business service and $2.50 per month for 
residence service, regardless of the number of parties connected on each line. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 175 

With reference to the application for certificate of convenience to acquire said 
property by purchase, the Commission is of the opinion that public convenience 
will be greatly enhanced by this acquisition and so holds. 

It is the purpose of the Western Carolina Telephone Company to construct a 
complete dial exchange and give a continuous service at Cullowhee, it being thought 
that at least thirty subscribers to this class of service can be secured; all present 
and prospective subscribers to be interviewed and contracts secured at the proposed 
rates for service before the new exchange is put into operation. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the petitioner be, and is hereby, authorized, subject to hearing 
upon complaint, to charge monthly rental rates, upon completion of the dial exchange 
at Cullowhee, as follows: 

(a) Within the base rate area, i. e., within one-half mile of the Cullowhee, North 
Carolina, central office 

Business— One-Party $3.00 

Business — Two-Party 2. 50 

Business — Four-Party 2. 50 

Residence — One-Party 2. 50 

Residence — Two-Party 2. 25 

Residence — Four-Party 2. 00 

(b) Outside the area indicated in "a," and within the territory regularly served 
by primary classes of service, the following rates apply, plus an additional charge 
for extra distance beyond the Exchange Base Rate Area of 63 cents per month per 
one-fourth mile or fraction thereof, to be prorated between two-party and four- 
party stations: 

Business— One-Party $3.00 

Business — Two-Party 2. 50 

Business — Four-Party 2. 50 

Residence — One-Party 2. 50 

Residence — Two-Party 2. 25 

Residence — Four-Party 2. 00 

Rural Multi-Party Service 
Within two miles, air line measurement, of the base rate area of the Cullowhee, 
North Carolina, exchange 

Business $2 . 50 

Residence 2. 00 

Beyond two miles, air line measurement, of the base rate area of the Cullowhee 
exchange, a mileage charge of 25 cents per mile or fraction thereof applies to each 
main station. 

Charges for miscellaneous service and equipment, service connection, moves and 
changes, restoration, etc., will be the standard charges now in effect at other ex- 
changes of the Western Carolina Telephone Company.
